Prerequisite: Minimum mathematical preparation requires students to have had courses that include a modicum
of trigonometry and algebra. MTH 151, 153, or equivalent are strongly encouraged.
Corequisite: PHY 173 labs (begin in the second week of classes).
II. Required Textbook: R. A. Serway, J. S. Faughn, C. Vuille, College Physics, 9th Edition (Brooks/Cole). The text
can be procured in e-book format via the WebAssign system.
III. Course Objectives and Outcomes: PHY 171 offers scientific knowledge sine qua non for a self-respecting
college graduate. It weaves concepts, explanations and logical patterns into a framework designed to enhanc e your
ability to look at the physical world in a more elaborate manner, deal with technological challenges, and even tackle
more advanced topics of Physics. Thus, by the end of this course, the diligent student should be able to explain the
principles of classical mechanics and apply them to simple physical situations in an organized manner using
symbolical algebraic manipulations and the language of...
