Basic Concepts of Physics

(Offered fall and spring). This is a basic overview course presenting physics concepts with a minimum emphasis on mathematics. As a conceptual course, it is designed to help students develop a clear and logical understanding of the fundamental physics principles to include motion, gravity, vectors, momentum, energy, vibrations, waves, heat and thermodynamics. Further, it will include practical examples that demonstrate the role of physics in other disciplines.
