About Physics, AppliedIn 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.
