PHY106001 
Survey Of Physics 
Classical and modern physics presented conceptually and experimentally for students desiring a onesemester introduction to physics. The class emphasizes verbal and conceptual understanding of the way the world works using as little mathematics as possible. This course is appropriate for nonscience majors and as a preparation for PHY211. (3 class hours / 2 laboratory hours) Prerequisite: MAT030 or MAT035, ENL108 or ESL201 or satisfactory basic skills assessment scores / 4 credits. Satisfies a Natural or Physical Science general education requirement. Offered: Varies


PHY151001 
Physics I 
(formerly PHY101) First semester of a twosemester introduction to college physics without calculus. This course covers mechanics (kinematics, dynamics and statics), relativity and some heat. The course is appropriate for any student interested in science and particularly appropriate for health sciences and preprofessional students. (3 class hours/ 2 laboratory hours) Prerequisite: MAT040 or MAT110 or MAT035, and ENL108 or ESL201 or satisfactory basic skills assessment scores / 4 credits. Satisfies a Natural or Physical Science general education requirement. Offered: Fall, Summer


PHY152001 
Physics II 
(formerly PHY102) Second semester of a twosemester introduction to college physics without calculus. This course covers vibrations and waves; electricity and magnetism; light and optics, and some modern physics. The course is appropriate for nonscience majors who are interested in science. (3 class hours / 2 laboratory hours) Prerequisite: A grade of C or better in PHY101 pr PHY151 / 4 credits. Satisfies a Natural or Physical Science general education requirement. Offered: Spring

Special Lab In The Physical Science s 

PHY199001 
Special Lab In The Physical Science s 
A laboratory portion of existing physical science courses that provides a laboratory experience for only those students who are transferring in credits for physical sciences courses that do not match the traditional fourcredit format (3 credits lecture, 1 credit laboratory). The laboratory selected must closely match the transferred physical science course, and must have the explicit approval of both the laboratory instructor and the Dean of Science, Technology, Mathematics, and Business. Only if seating is available will students be allowed to register for the appropriate laboratory section during the ADD period. Students who transfer in more than one physical science course may register twice (but, not for the same laboratory experience) for PHY199. Students with laboratory deficiencies in physical sciences courses taken at CCCC will not be allowed to register for PHY199, since the physical sciences courses are designed and taught such that the laboratory and lecture are nonsepa


PHY211001 
University Physics I 
First semester of a twosemester introduction to university physics. This course covers mechanics (kinematics, dynamics and statics), relativity and some heat. The course is appropriate for math, science, and engineering students. Calculus will be used. Previous experience in physics (such as PHY106) is strongly recommended. Students must have taken or be currently enrolled in MAT240, Calculus I. (3 lecture hours / 2 laboratory hours / 1 recitation hour) Prerequisite: MAT195; Corequisite: ENL101 and MAT240 / 4 credits. Satisfies a Natural or Physical Science general education requirement. Offered: Varies


PHY212001 
University Physics II 
Second semester of a twosemester introduction to university physics using calculus. This course covers vibrations and waves; electricity and magnetism; optics; and a brief introduction to modern physics. The course is appropriate for math, science, and engineering students. Calculus will be used throughout the course. Students must have taken or be currently enrolled in MAT250, Calculus II. (3 lecture hours / 2 laboratory hours / 1 recitation hour) Prerequisite: A grade of C or better in PHY211 / 4 credits. Satisfies a Natural or Physical Science general education requirement. Offered: Varies


PHY299001 
Independent Study: Physics 
This course of study provides an introduction to fundamental concepts in physics education research (PER). A dynamic interdisciplinary field, PER is the result of the intersection of fundamental knowledge about teaching and learning and domain specific knowledge of physics. In this course we examine ways to make teaching and learning in physics more effective and efficient by investigating specific scientific practices (e.g., modeling, constructing and interpreting evidencebased explanations and arguments, collecting and analyzing data).
(3 class hours)
