Physics II Seminar

PHYS-212, 1 cr.

Course Description
PHYS-212 is an enrichment seminar accompanying Physics II (PHYS 202 and PHYS 207). Students engage in problem solving in a cooperative learning environment to gain a deeper understanding of the concepts and applications presented in Physics II. 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 College Physics II (PHYS-202) and University Physics II (PHYS-207). The list of specific modules to be discussed can be found on the syllabus page. 1.0 Credits.
Registration in PHYS-212 is restricted to students who are currently enrolled in either PHYS-202, or PHYS-207.
