Please note that PHYS 101 was intended to be a Carolina Core course. It was not designated as one merely due to oversight.
Physics has been recognized by established scientists to be the basis of all sciences. Since grounding in the sciences is considered optimal for the educational foundation of an undergraduate student, it will be ideal for him/her to have a basic knowledge and understanding of physics. Compared to PHYS 201, which is a requirement for certain science majors, and PHYS 211, which is a requirement for engineering and certain other science majors, PHYS 101 is recommended for students who are not in the sciences, such as arts, education and business majors. It introduces them to the fundamental principles of physics and requires them to demonstrate understanding by solving problems through performing derivations with equations. The mathematical processes are a basic skill that should be mastered by all college students to meet the demands of their profession, their personal life, and their involvement with the community. The physical conception will expand their mind and provide them with a higher perspective of phenomena. The practical application of mathematics to the physical conception will help them to quantify phenomena.
