Survey of Physics (PHYS 1000)

Credits:  4   Lecture Credits:  3.00   Lab Credits:  1.00  
Description:  This course is a broad survey of physics concepts designed for students in education and other programs outside of science and engineering; it does not serve as a prerequisite for other physics coursework. You will apply the fundamental concepts and principles of physics. You will understand the nature of physics as a human endeavor, and gain a historical perspective of this field. This course includes a required lab which must be taken on campus.
MnTC: Goal 3 Prerequisites:

Background in mathematics is recommended, but not required.

Introduction to Physics (PHYS 1100)

Credits:  4   Lecture Credits:  3.00   Lab Credits:  1.00  
Description:  Introduction to Physics is an introduction to basic principles of physics and how these principles explain everyday phenomena. You will have the opportunity to explore a basic science course before enrolling in advanced science courses. Minneapolis College offers the lecture portion of this course both on campus and online. The lab portion of this course is required and includes two hours of lab per week, which must be taken on campus.
MnTC: Goal 3 Prerequisites:

Placement score into MATH 1110 or completion of MATH 0080 or MATH 0088. It is strongly recommended that students have completed MATH 0080 or MATH 0088 with a grade of  'C' or higher.

College Physics 1 (PHYS 1131)

Credits:  5   Lecture Credits:  4.00   Lab Credits:  1.00  
Description:  This course is the first of a two-semester course sequence and is an algebra- and trigonometry-based course designed to familiarize the student with the physical phenomena underlying both the natural universe and human technology. Subjects include mechanics, heat and thermodynamics, wave phenomena, sound, physical and geometrical optics, electricity, Magnetism, and postclassical physics. Many science-related programs, such as pharmacy, architecture and physical therapy, require a physics course of this type. This course also satisfies the physics requirement for some premed curricula. This course includes two hours of laboratory instruction per week. This course is also appropriate for liberal arts students seeking General Education credits.
MnTC: Goal 3 Prerequisites:

Two years high school algebra and high school trigonometry OR MATH 1110 and MATH 1120 or MATH 1119 and MATH 1120 or MATH 1125.
