Synopsis

This is the first semester of a two-semester sequence in electrodynamics. The material covered in this class will introduce you to the physics of static electric and magnetic fields. Along the way we will pick up some mathematical techniques (gradients, curls, line integrals, surface integrals etc.) useful for calculating electric and magnetic fields. During the course, you will develop fluency in the requisite mathematical techniques and an understanding of the physical nature of the electromagnetic interaction between charged objects. While it is important not to lose sight of the physics when you do physics, to succeed in this class it is equally important to understand the math when you do math.
