An introduction to physics is provided through the study of Newtonian physics, energy, and electrical circuits (including transistors, photo detectors, and force transducers). Special emphasis is given to contemporary physics--physics developed during the 20th century. Skills learned that will be useful in other disciplines as well as physics include laboratory record-keeping, problem solving, and computer mathematical packages.
