Official course description: The first of a two-semester non-calculus sequence in introductory physics, intended particularly for life-science majors. Topics to be covered include mechanics, waves, sound, and thermal physics. Lectures, demonstrations, and problem solving will help the student develop an understanding of physical phenomena. Mathematical treatment is at the level of algebra and trigonometry. This course is not recommended for students planning to major in the physical sciences or engineering. It should be taken concurrently with PHY 114, Introductory Physics Laboratory I. Prerequisite: successful completion of the University's readiness requirement in mathematics. Three hours of lecture and one hour of recitation per week.
