About Physics, Applied

In the basic courses the student will learn to apply logical reasoning to better understand physical phenomena in the world around them. Students will learn to quantitatively relate hypothesis to measurement and reality and to successfully employ reduction, abstraction, and induction to analyze complex phenomena and problems. They will learn the basic techniques of the scientific method and become familiar with methods to rigorously test scientific ideas experimentally. Students will discover the conceptual usefulness of quantitative theories in collecting, relating, and explaining knowledge and begin to appreciate their predictive power.
