Description

This is a required course for all Engineering Programmes as well as Physics and Astronomy degrees. PHYS101 builds on NCEA level 3 physics to develop Mechanics, Conservation Laws, Fluids, Waves, Thermal Physics, and Electromagnetism into an essential foundation for science and technology understanding.

Your first reference for all matters related to PHYS101 should be the course outline this is available on LEARN and in the "Course Links" below.  This will be updated as information becomes available throughout  the course. You should also examine the discussion forums on the course web pages (see LEARN section in this document) and ask general questions in those forums.

Any queries about information not covered in this course outline should be directed to the email address  below,  please  email  only that address as this helps to ensure that your questions are
answered by the appropriate person. You should make the subject line of your email informative enough so that the issue you have can be identified from that subject line.

Learning Outcomes

The goal of this course is to provide foundation knowledge of Mechanics, Conservation Laws, Fluids, Waves, Thermal Physics and Electromagnetism for students advancing in physical science and engineering degrees.  Students will obtain basic competency in analysing and solving physical problems in these areas.  They will also obtain basic physics laboratory skills and data analysis techniques.

Prerequisites

1) a) PHYS111 or NCEA 14 credits (18 credits strongly recommended) at level 3 Physics, and b) MATH101 or 14 Credits (18 credits strongly recommended) at level 3 Mathematics (including the standards 'Apply differentiation methods in solving problems (91578)' and 'Apply integration methods in solving problems(91579)), or

2) Cambridge: D at A level or an A at AS level in both Physics and Mathematics, or

3) IB: 4 at HL or 6 at SL in both Physics and Mathematics, or

4) approval of the Head of Department based on alternative prior learning.
