Fall 2018 Class Schedule (FLC)



Back to Previous Page

PHYS 310    Conceptual Physics    3 Units

Prerequisite: None.
Advisory: ENGRD 110 and MATH 100
General Education: AA/AS Area IV; CSU Area B1; IGETC Area 5A
Course Transferable to UC/CSU
Hours: 54 hours LEC
Description: This course provides a conceptual overview of Newtonian and modern physics for non-science students. The conceptual or non-mathematical approach to physics is tied to the student's personal experience in their everyday life. The student learns to see physics not as a classroom or laboratory activity, but as a part of his or her surroundings. The class is open to all students with no previous physics course.

Schedule: Full Term, Aug 25-Dec 20

PHYS 311    Basic Physics    3 Units

Prerequisite: MATH 335 with a grade of "C" or better; or a high school course in trigonometry with a grade of "C" or better
General Education: AA/AS Area IV; CSU Area B1; IGETC Area 5A
Course Transferable to UC/CSU
Hours: 54 hours LEC
Description: This course is a survey course for science, engineering, mathematics, architecture, and computer science majors who have had no previous physics courses and plan to continue with PHYS 350 or 411. The course will develop the math and science background and the problem-solving skills necessary for success in Physics 350 or 411. Material covered will include math review, vectors, and basic mechanics (kinematics, Newton's Laws, and energy).
