Problem Solving Courses

Problem Solving for Physics I & II

Whether you are enrolled in Physics with (PHY 2048 and PHY 2049) or without (PHY 2053 and PHY 2054) calculus, these one-credit hour courses are a great supplement to the main courses. They are intended to give you additional insights in how to solve the kinds of problems that you will encounter in your homework and on the exams. Various techniques and general rules of thumb for solving physics problems are covered. The hope is that these courses will help you achieve a better grade in your physics course. Most instructors also teach or have taught the regular physics classes and therefore are very familiar with the kind of difficulties students typically encounter.

Due to increased demand, we are now offering different courses for Physics with and without calculus.
