Minnesota Transfer Curriculum Goal
Goal 03  Natural Science
 Demonstrate understanding of scientific theories.
 Formulate and test hypotheses by performing laboratory, simulation, or field experiments in at least two of the natural science disciplines. One of these experimental components should develop, in greater depth, students' laboratory experience in the collection of data, its statistical and graphical analysis, and an appreciation of its sources of error and uncertainty.
 Communicate their experimental findings, analyses, and interpretations both orally and in writing.
 Evaluate societal issues from a natural science perspective, ask questions about the evidence presented, and make informed judgments about sciencerelated topics and policies.
Description
Meets MN Transfer Curriculum Goal Area 3  Natural Sciences. This course covers the fundamentals of physics at conceptual level in the area of Mechanics, Properties of Matter, Heat, Sound, Electricity and Magnetism. This is a introductory course in Physics; which underlines on the essential concepts, vocabulary and applications of physics. This course is designed to prepare the students for higher level physics courses or for the students who do not plan to pursue career in science and engineering. This course encompasses lab component which emphasizes on measurement, result prediction, data collection, and data analysis.
Student Learning Outcomes:
* Apply the concepts of physics in the fields of Mechanics, Properties of Matter, Heat, Sound, Electricity and Magnetism.
* Expound the linear motion of objects  speed, velocity, acceleration, circular motion, projectile motion and Newton's Law of Motions
* Illustrate basic fundamentals related to conservation of momentum and energy.
* Define the angular motion of objects  angular velocity, angular acceleration, torque and angular momentum.
* Paraphrase the introductory concepts of heat and thermodynamics for example; pressure, temperature, thermal expansion, heat transfer and change of phases and describe first and second law of thermodynamics.
* Interpret basic principles of wave propagation and oscillations.
* Use various concepts of electricity and magnetism such as Coulomb's law, Ohm's law, series circuit, and parallel circuit.
* Differentiate between direct and inverse relationship among different physical quantities and explain how change in one quantity affects another quantity.
* Conduct experiments to test hypothesis and mathematical formula.
* Demonstrate experimental expertise through taking precise measurement, collecting, analyzing, tabulating and interpreting data.
* Analyze 'real world' problems to simplify them through problem solving techniques and calculate or estimate solutions.
