Introduction to Physics is the study of the fundamental laws of nature. This physics course aims to foster and develop, as part of general education, a scientific way of thinking and a basic knowledge of scientific ideas. Numerical examples and derivation of formulae will be algebra-based. The course will also foster understanding of science as an integral part of society's culture and provide groundwork for further academic or career training.
Physics 52 and 53 together are equivalent to Physics 050 and each is equivalent to Physics 11.
Prerequisites: Principles of Math 10 or Foundations and Pre-Calculus 10 or Math 49.
Co-requisites: Pre-Calculus 11 or Math 050 or Math 52/53.
