Physics Is . . .
In the past Physics was known as "Natural Philosophy". I like the implication of that name; Physics is understanding the natural world around us. Physics involves understanding, not memorizing.
Excursions in Physics, PHYsics 3050, is a one-semester survey course in Physics;
It is part of the Integrated Core or General Education courses.
The nature of this course will be to concentrate on the ideas and concepts, not on equations.
Anyone desiring a more rigorous course may also enjoy PHYsics 1150, 1160 or PHYsics 1350, 1360, 1370.
Physics includes everything. That means we must pick and choose the topics that we will cover in this course.
