Physics

 

Physics 1020
Introductory Physics I is a non-calculus based introduction to mechanics.
Lectures: Three hours per week
Laboratories: Normally six laboratory sessions per semester, with each session lasting a maximum of two hours.
Tutorials/Problem Sessions: Scheduled during weeks when there are no laboratories, at the instructor’s discretion.
Prerequisite: Level III Advanced Mathematics or Mathematics 1090. Mathematics 1090 may be taken concurrently. It is recommended that students have completed at least one of Level II and Level III high school physics courses, however, this course may be completed by someone who has no physics background provided some extra effort is made.


Physics 1021
Introductory Physics II is a non-calculus based introduction to fluids, wave motion, light, optics, electricity and magnetism.
Lectures: Three hours per week
Laboratories: Normally six laboratory sessions per semester, with each session lasting a maximum of two hours.
Tutorials/Problem Sessions: Scheduled during weeks when there are no laboratories, at the instructor’s discretion.
Prerequisite: Physics 1020 or 1050 and Mathematics 1090 or Math 1000, either of which may be taken concurrently
