00 – Syllabus

Course Description:

Physics 102 is mainly about the basic concepts of Electricity and Magnetism, or Electromagnetism. A wide variety of interesting topics are covered in this course. Physics 102 Electricity and Magnetism is a challenging course for learners and educators. Throughout this media technology, as an educator, I will go out of my way to introduce many phenomena that learners and educators can see around them. Then, I made those phenomena connect with electromagnetism—for instance, lighting, pacemakers, and electric shock treatment.

We even do an electrocardiogram in class. We will discuss metal detectors. Also, there is a discussion about musical instruments. We will share an idea for an electric vehicle, bullet trains, radios, and TV. We will talk about northern light, which is very relevant to electromagnetism. We will discuss why the sunset was red and the sky blue. We will talk about rainbows, halos, about multi-colour perceptions. Since we will discuss Doppler Effect, we will also peek at Big Bang Cosmology.

At the end of the Physics 102 Electromagnetism lecture, as an educator, I will introduce my learner to research, especially during my early time when I was analyzing the effective use of material and components around us. My goal is to make learners see through the Equation, to make learners see the beauty all around them, and during that, to make them love their community and environment.

We evaluate learners through traditional exams and PBL from the lecture I will give.

This lecture has many events, and every course is an event. As an educator and learner, I am not given a traditional approach, so each study is an event. We will have a contest. We hand a leaner a piece of materials, like some wood, copper wire, a few paper clips, and magnets, with the goal is to make an electric model.

My message to all educators is that what comes is different from what you cover but counts toward what you uncover, which is often forgotten. Noted it; what matter is what you uncover. There are parts of the course that learners will remember for the rest of their life, and that’s even more important.

If a learner can come to my lectures on their learning, then glories for the rest of their life as they won’t see those events the same anymore. They will think of science when they see those phenomena. And, after the lecture, some can send me insight, opinions, taught, or memoirs.

Lectures – Homework – Exams 

There will be 36 lectures, 13 problem sets, four exams during regular lecture hours, and a PBL project as your final exam. During exams, I expect you to be aware of the material covered in (I) the lectures, (ii) the reading assignments, (iii) the problem sets, and (iv) the practice. When the need arises, a lecture supplement will be made available.

Please submit your homework on the due dates before 23:00 of the date. Three problems, randomly chosen, will be graded. Solutions will be made available on the day after the due dates.

The homework counts for 10%, the weekly discussion for 10%, each problem sets for 15%, each exam for 20%, and the PBL counts for 45% of your course grade.

There will be no make-up exams! Missed homework, discussion, problem sets, and exams count as a zero. Only in case of verifiable absences can you be excused from taking one of the existing exams. This should be done before the PBL.
