Length: 113 hours Prerequisites: MATH 080 or Pre-Calculus 11 or Principles 11 is a required course, either taken prior to PHYS 080 or concurrently. Delivery Method: Directed Studies, On-campus Cost: $54.60 Course Outline: Outlines/PHYS080.pdf

This course introduces students to physical laws governing motion, heat, electricity, waves and optics. Using verbal descriptions, geometry, algebra, graphs and vectors, students model the physical world and lend structure to common sense ideas about how the physical world behaves. Sophisticated data equipment in the physics laboratory gives students quick and easy access to data allowing them to develop models describing their environment.
