PHYS 2207 -PHYS 2208 is a two-semester introduction to physics with emphasis on tools generally applicable in sciences. Provides a structured learning environment with significant contact hours to help students develop mastery. The combination of interactive lectures illustrated with applications from the sciences, medicine, and everyday life, weekly labs tightly coupled to lectures, and recitations that emphasize cooperative problem-solving, provide a rich exposure to the methods of physics and the basic analytical and scientific communication skills required by all scientists. Covers electricity and magnetism, and topics from geometrical and physical optics and quantum, nuclear and particle physics.  At the level of University Physics for the Physical and Life Sciences by Philip Kesten and David Tauck.
