Textbook: Fundamentals of Physics (Extended 6th Edition) by Halliday,
Resnick & Walker. Published by John Wiley & Sons, Inc. ISBN:
0-471-33236-4

**DESCRIPTION:**

PHYS 632 (4 credits) Classical and Modern Physics II. This calculus
based course includes 2 hours of intensive physics lecture/
demonstrations/ discussion and 1 1/2 hours of problems each day for 4
weeks. Topics include Electricity, Magnetism, and Optics. Emphasis is
on physics concepts geared toward middle school physical science and
high school physics teachers. Problem sets continue through early Fall
through distance-learning via the internet. The Final Exam
is given in October via the internet (with a local proctor).

**PREPARATION:**

It is strongly recommended that students prepare for the course PRIOR
to arrival by acquiring the textbook and pre-reading the chapters to be
covered. This course is the most difficult topic in the 3-course series
of Classical and Modern Physics. In order to be adequately prepared for
the homework and the lecture sessions, a review of necessary
math/calculus skills is necessary. Appendix E of the textbook
(beginning on pg A-9) lists mathematical formulas, trig functions,
vector products, derivatives and integrals. Please seek additional
review material if these topics are not familiar.
