Fall 2017: PHY 2060 - Enriched Physics 1

This is the first course in the Enriched Physics sequence PHY 2060-2061 for students with prior preparation in physics who wish to acquire a deeper understanding of the subject. The enriched sequence covers similar material to the Physics With Calculus sequence PHY 2048–2049, but treats basic topics at a faster pace, incorporates more advanced material, and places greater emphasis on instilling conceptual understanding and on developing the ability to solve more challenging problems. PHY 2060 treats concepts in classical mechanics, including kinematics, dynamics, conservation laws, oscillations, and special relativity.

Here is the syllabus for the 2017 version of the course.
