PHYS 632 - Classical and Modern Physics II
A comprehensive study of physics using some
calculus and emphasizing concepts, problem solving, and pedagogy. This course
series is intended for in-service science teachers, particularly middle school
physical science and high school physics teachers. This course can be used for
crossover teachers who wish to obtain endorsement or certification to teach
high school physics. This is a required
course for the M.A.P.E. degree. This
course is typically taught for 4 weeks in the summer with a daily two-hour
lecture and two-hour problem session.
Problem sets continue for three months into the next semester. Coulomb’s law, Gauss’s law,
electrostatics, electric fields, capacitance, inductance, circuits, magnetism,
and electromagnetic waves. (SI).
