Introductory Physics Sequence

There are 4 lecture tracks available &ndash

All are Calculus-Based

All satisfy medical school requirements

All can be used as entrances to a Physics major

  • Physics 170/171 (closest to AP Physics - with examples from the biological sciences)
  • Physics 180/181 (closest to AP Physics - with examples from the physical sciences)
  • Physics 200/201 (beyond AP Physics)
  • Physics 260/261 (significantly beyond AP Physics)

There are 2 lab sequences:

Lab 1 - Ph 165La/166Lb (goes with lecture #1-2 above)

Lab 2 - Ph 205Lb/206La (goes with lecture #3-4 above).
