Physics I Seminar

PHYS-211, 1 cr.

Course Description
PHYS-211 is an enrichment seminar accompanying Physics I (PHYS 201 and PHYS 206). Students engage in problem solving in a cooperative learning environment to gain a deeper understanding of the concepts and applications presented in Physics I. Carefully planned activities are tailored to a peer-led team learning format consisting of small groups of students. The group work and the process of articulating and discussing ideas within a problem based context is beneficial to all students involved. The content of the seminar is closely tied to the content of University Physics I (PHYS-206) and College Physics (PHYS-201). The list of specific modules to be discussed can be found on the syllabus page. 1.0 Credits.
Registration in PHYS-211 is restricted to students who are currently enrolled in either PHYS-206, or PHYS-201.
