PHYSCS 12, Introductory Physics Non-Lab 3 units

Transfer: UC, CSU IGETC AREA 5 (Physical Sciences, non-lab) Prerequisite: None.

Physics 12 is designed for the student who is interested in a more conceptual and less mathematical approach to physics. It is a survey course introducing the topics of mechanics, heat, sound, electricity and magnetism, light and modern physics. The emphasis will be on developing conceptual understanding of the laws of nature through lectures, demonstrations, and class discussions. High school math recommended.

PHYSCS 14, Introductory Physics with Lab 4 units

Transfer: UC, CSU IGETC AREA 5 (Physical Science, + LAB) Prerequisite: None.

Physics 14 is recommended for students who have not had high school physics but are planning to take Physics.

This course is similar to Physics 12 in content, and difficulty level, but with a laboratory session added to enhance the learning experience. Physics 14 is designed for the student who is interested in a more conceptual and less mathematical approach to physics. It is a survey course introducing the topics of mechanics, heat, sound, electricity and magnetism, light and modern physics. The emphasis will be on developing conceptual understanding of the laws of nature through hands-on experiences, laboratory experiments, and computer interactions, in addition to lectures and demonstrations. Maximum credit for Physics 12 and 14 combined is 4 units. High school math recommended.
