- PHYS 1010 is a four-credit lecture/lab online physics course. This course is designed to provide an introduction to algebra-based physics. Topics covered include: velocity, acceleration, force, work, energy, momentum, circular motion, gravitation, torque, rotational motion and fluids.
- Demonstrate an understanding of the fundamental principles of the scientific method, as well as fundamental laws, theories, and principles related to physics.
- Apply knowledge and critical thinking skills to relevant physics problems.
- Plan and conduct laboratory investigations to predict relationships between key variables in physics problems. Analyze independently collected data using tools, technologies, and models to make valid and reliable scientific claims.
- Apply ideas, principles, and/or evidence gained from various experiments, as well as other observations, to provide a physical explanation of everyday phenomena and solve problems, taking into account possible unanticipated effects.
- Communicate results of lab experiments and independent work through multiple representations.
- One semester of college-level algebra
- Background knowledge in trigonometry
* Please note these prerequisites are highly suggested and support course preparedness and success. We recommend having completed the listed prerequisites before enrolling and within the past seven years.
How do exams work?
All exams are taken online. Major exams are required to be proctored online through ProctorU. For instructions on how to take your exams online, visit UNE Online’s ProctorU site. Please note exams must also be proctored with the UNE-approved external webcam.
How do labs work?
Labs will focus on discovering relationships between variables involved in our fundamental models of physics. Laboratory instructions and experiment submission forms are provided for each lab and are organized by course week/topic.
