DESCRIPTION

We will be using the book Thinking Physics, but I recommend that students NOT purchase the book before taking the course. This is an introduction to conceptual physics which does not require much math and absolutely does not require calculus. Because one of the main goals is to develop accurate physics intuition, our discussions of the problems will acknowledge and discuss common errors of thinking while we develop the conceptual tools necessary for later application of mathematical tools to solving physics problems. No homework though your student may beg to have the book after they have completed the course!

Find Thinking Physics at your library, your favorite bookseller, or here.
