More Information

Section Description

"An experiment is a question we ask the universe." - C.V. Boys. This course provides opportunities for hands-on investigation of the concepts and ideas of an introductory physics course focused on mechanics. You will do a series of experiments during lab period, with guiding questions provided for each experiment. You will exit the course with a more solid understanding of physics and the world around you; and with a greater dexterity in applying physics concepts and calculating expected outcomes. Designed to accompany Physics 11, the lecture course.

Section Expectation

You'll complete more than half a dozen experiments on topics from kinematics to wave motion. Each experiment will require a brief write-up.

Evaluation

Grades are from the lab reports. There are no mid-terms or final examination.
