PHYS 137 - Models in Physics (3 credits)

(Coreq: PHYS 137L ) This course is an introduction to the development, testing, analysis, and interpretation of models of physical systems. Through hands-on laboratory activities, students use scientific reasoning and the process of science to discover for themselves physical models that predict behavior for common, everyday applications, such as electric circuits, light, magnets, motion, and energy. The focus of the course is on how science is used as a tool towards understanding our physical world, and specifically serves as an introduction to how science is done within the context of physics.
