Learning Outcomes Today we will discuss: I where to find course resources I course organization I required work I grading standards and policies Learning Outcomes for the Course The official department outcomes are: I Solve problems and answer conceptual questions about electric charges, fields, electric potentials, and circuits. I Solve problems and answer conceptual questions about magnetic fields, magnetic forces, Faradays Law, and electromagnetic waves. I Solve problems and answer conceptual questions about geometric and wave optics. I Solve problems and answer conceptual questions about special relativity, quantum physics, atomic physics, and nuclear physics. Learning Outcomes for the Course My (less quantifiable and hence deemed worthless by superior powers) additional expected outcomes are: I gain a greater appreciation of the beauty and symmetry of physical law I understand that physics is the process of creating abstract models that behave the way the natural world behaves I use models in the forms of ideas, geometrical constructs, or equations to explain the physical world and predict outcomes I recognize applications of what you learn in the world around you I apply physics problem-solving skills to problems you have not seen before and to non-physics applications I be able to work MCAT-type problems associated with the course material.
