Instructor:Instructor: R.A. Lindgren, Instructor of Record and Lecturer Description:PHYS 632 (4 credits) Classical and Modern Physics II. This calculus based course includes 2 hours of intensive physics lecture/ demonstrations/ discussion and 1 1/2 hours of problems each day for 4 weeks. Topics include Electricity, Magnetism, and Optics. Emphasis is on physics concepts geared toward middle school physical science and high school physics teachers. Problem sets continue through early Fall through distancelearning via the internet. The Final Exam is given in October via the internet (with a local proctor). Preparation:It is strongly recommended that students prepare for the course PRIOR to arrival by acquiring the textbook and prereading the chapters to be covered. This course is the most difficult topic in the 3course series of Classical and Modern Physics. In order to be adequately prepared for the homework and the lecture sessions, a review of necessary math/calculus skills is necessary. The textbook lists mathematical formulas, trig functions, vector products, derivatives and integrals. Please seek additional review material if these topics are not familiar.
