# Spring 2018 Class Schedule (CRC)

*Prerequisite:*None.

*Advisory:*MATH 100 or 102; or equivalent skills demonstrated through the assessment process.

*General Education:*AA/AS Area IV; CSU Area B1; IGETC Area 5A

*Course Transferable to UC/CSU*

*See UC Limitations & Counselor*

*Hours:*54 hours LEC

*Description:*This course provides a conceptual overview of Newtonian and modern physics for non-science and science students alike. The conceptual approach to physics is tied to the student's personal experience in the everyday world, so that the student learns to see physics not as just a classroom or laboratory activity, but as a part of his or her surroundings. The class is open to students with no previous physics background.
