Inter 01.315 PATTERNS IN NATURE II: CALCULUS AND PHYSICS
Inter 01.315 Patterns in Nature II: CALCULUS AND PHYSICS 4 s.h.
Prerequisites: Math 01.315 Patterns in Nature I
This course actively involves students in developing mathematics and
science concepts associated with calculus and physics while de-emphasizing
algorithms. Problems arise from physics and are analyzed using mathematical
models. Graphing calculators, computers, and physical models are used extensively.
Students completing this course will be able to:
- use physical models, charts, graphs, equations, and inequalities to describe real-world relationships;
- use graphs, diagrams, and physical models to interpret and relate the concepts of limit, differentiation, and integration;
- apply quantitative techniques to the analysis of problems involving
motion and spectra.
Five books from Cambridge University 16-19 Mathematics series:
NEWTON'S LAWS OF MOTION
MODELING WITH CIRCULAR MOTION
MODELING WITH FORCE AND MOTION
