SCB 710: RESEARCH TOPICS IN SCB

Presentations by SCB faculty and students on current research topics. Required for the SCB certificate; other graduate students are welcome.

PHYSICS 262: MECHANICS

This upper-level mechanics course is aimed at biophysics and physics majors; it covers topics in non-relativistic classical mechanics and techniques in applied mathematics and computation. It assumes a mastery of the material covered in Mth 205 and Phy 113. Once a week, there is a matlab "lab," which serves the dual-purpose of introducing computational methods and allowing for the exploration of more complex-problems in mechanics.

Physics 113: General Physics I

This calculus-based introduction to physics aimed at Divison V majors and pre-medical students covers basic mechanics, waves, and thermodynamics. This is a "flipped", more interactive, course with many examples from the biophysical and biomedical sciences.
