# XII. Course Descriptions

## Interdisciplinary Physical Science

IPS*1500 Integrated Mathematics and Physics I F (6-4) [1.00] | |
---|---|

This is a foundational course for students in B.Sc. mathematical and physical sciences majors. The disciplines of Mathematics and Physics are taught in an integrated fashion that demonstrates how they support and enrich one another. Atomic structure, algebra and trigonometry, forces and Newton's laws, functions and graphing, differentiation, angular momentum and energy conservation, limits, integration, kinematics, and special relativity are presented in a harmonized fashion to ensure students have an improved understanding of these fundamentals. | |

Prerequisite(s): | (4U Calculus and Vectors or equivalent), (4U Physics or PHYS*1020 or equivalent) |

Restriction(s): | MATH*1200, PHYS*1000. Restricted to B.Sc. students in APMS:C, BPCH, BPCH:C, BMPH, BMPH:C, CHPY, CHPY:C, CHEM, CHEM:C, MATH, NANO, NANO:C, PSCI, PHYS, PHYS:C, STAT, THPY |

IPS*1510 Integrated Mathematics and Physics II W (6-4) [1.00] | |
---|---|

This is the second foundational course for students in B.Sc. mathematical and physical sciences majors. The disciplines of Mathematics and Physics are taught in an integrated fashion that demonstrates how they support and enrich one another. Thermodynamics, integration, electrostatics, partial derivatives, multidimensional integrals, simple harmonic motion, Taylor's series, and spectroscopy are presented in a harmonized fashion to ensure students have an improved understanding of these fundamentals. | |
