Official course description: This course introduces selected topics in physics covering mechanics, fluids, heat, electrical circuits, and modern physics. It does not meet the requirements for the pre-medical and pre-dental majors, but is commonly taken by students to meet the preprofessional requirements in pharmacy, medical technology, nursing, and speech pathology. Most of the necessary math is developed in the course. Homework, lab work (with the 4 s.h. option), and the midterm and final exams are used for determining grades. The three weekly lectures are conducted by the professor in charge of the course. TAs conduct a three-hour lab session each week (with the 4 s.h. option).
