What makes this course interesting?

  • Develop a deep understanding of foundational principles of physics in electricity and magnetism by applying these principles to complex physical situations that combine multiple aspects of physics rather than present concepts in isolation
  • Design and conduct inquiry-based laboratory investigations to solve problems through first-hand observations, data collection, analysis and interpretation
  • Develop critical thinking skills through applying methods of differential and integral calculus to formulate physical principles and solve complex physical problems

Explore concepts such as electrostatics, electric circuits, conductors, capacitors, dielectrics, magnetic fields, and electromagnetism.

Learn to apply differential and integral calculus in order to solve problems associated with these concepts. Build your understanding and critical thinking skills through inquiry-based, laboratory investigations that explore these physics concepts.
