Subject and Focus of the Course):  This course, “EM1”, covers the “statics” part of electrodynamics, which is described
in the first six chapters of the textbook.  Next semester, “EM2” covers the “dynamics” in Chapter 7 and beyond. 
Students entering this course have a wide variety of backgrounds.  The course will attempt to be self-contained and
will lay the foundations of the mathematics necessary for understanding the material.
