EDU 195-01 - Introductory Special Topic: How to Learn Physics

4 credits (Fall)
Cross-listed as: PHY 195-01 . An elective science course designed for students who might be interested in physics, but are a little mystified or intimiated by it. Students will use inquiry-based methods to study some basic concepts of physical science. But the course also focuses on learning science as “the refinement of everyday thinking”. (Einstein, 1936) Occasional lectures will introduce a vocabulary to help students become more aware of everyday thinking and its subsequent refinement toward scientific understanding. Intended for non-science majors.

Prerequisite: None.
Instructor: Hutchison
