select to open or close Course ePortfolio pedagogy and outcomes Pedagogical Approach & Learning Outcomes

Pedagogical Approach: Various
Outcomes: To think critically about the sign, order of magnitude, direction and units of every answer we write down, to be sure that it makes sense physically. To analyze a graph of position vs. time for information about velocity and acceleration. To use units to construct consistent equations to solve problems. To analyze a one or two-dimensional free fall problem, kinematically, dynamically, and using conservation principles. To understand the isometry between one dimensional uniform accelerated motion and uniformly accelerated rotational motion. To analyze static equilibrium problems by balancing forces and torques. To analyze a graph of electrical or gravitational potential to determine acceleration and field directions. To analyze the electrical or gravitational fields due to multiple sources, and their actions on a test particle. To analyze RC circuits of varying topology. To use the isometry between electrical circuit and fluid problems to analyze fluid flows. To understand standing and traveling wave behavior in terms of wave phases. To understand magnetic fields and forces, and their actions on current elements and loops, in terms of cross products. To use Planck units and quantum numbers to describe atomic electrons. To relate quantum energy transitions to absorbed or emitted radiation. To understand the isometries between various diffusive phenomena. To understand the various modes of heat transfer. To apply energy and entropic principles to physical systems.
