Course Content This course deals with electric and magnetic interactions , which are central to the structure of matter, to chemical and biological phenomena, and to the design and operation of most modern technology. The main goal of this course is to have you engage in a process central to science: the attempt to model a broad range of physical phenomena using a small set of powerful fundamental principles . The specific focus of the course is an introduction to field theory , in terms of the classical theory of electricity and magnetism (E&M). The course also emphasizes the atomic structure of matter, especially the role of electrons and protons in matter.
