NUMBER OF CONTACT HOURS PER WEEK 6 (4 Lecture, 2 Laboratory) 6. APPROXIMATE FREQUENCY OF OFFERING THIS COURSE [Every semester, fall, spring, or not offered every semester] Fall, Spring, and Summer Session 1 7. PREREQUISITES OR ENTRY LEVEL SKILLS A working knowledge of Algebra and Trigonometry 8. COREQUISITES None 9. PLACE OF THIS COURSE IN CURRICULUM: Required for Curriculum (name) College Core X_ Elective Part of Required/Recommended Sequence with (Number of Course) 10. IS THIS COURSE DESIGNED FOR TRANSFER TOWARD A SPECIFIC MAJOR? _X_ Yes No MAJOR(S) health sciences 11. STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES (SLO) and COURSE OBJECTIVES Under each SLO, list the related course objective(s). (Three to five SLO s suggested) For every Student Learning Outcome, describe at least one measure, instrument, tool, observation, etc. Course Objective 1: Understanding of the methods scientists use to explore natural phenomena, including observation, hypothesis development, measurement and data collection, experimentation, evaluation of evidence, and employment of mathematical analysis SLO 1: define technical terms commonly found in the study of mechanics SLO 2: demonstrate proficiency in applying physical laws pertaining to the study of mechanics (along with correct mathematics) to the solution of problems involving simple physical situations. These problems may include those requiring the simultaneous solution of two or three equations, and the solution of quadratic equations. SLO 3: employ the standard systems of units in physics SLO 4: analyze word problems describing realistic situations to determine which physical principles apply. Instrument Multiple choice questions on 5 written examinations during the semester Problem solving on 5 written examinations during the semester and a comprehensive written final exam Problem solving on class exams, lab write-ups and homeworks Problem solving on class examinations and on final exam Course Objective 2: Application of scientific data,

2 concepts, and models in one of the natural sciences SLO 5: perform laboratory investigations, collect and analyze data, and establish the accuracy or validity of the work in simple experiments. SLO 6: express technical concepts and information and explain answers to questions involving physics principles by means of written laboratory reports which demonstrate elementary technical report writing skills as well as correct English. weekly lab reports weekly lab reports Indicate which of the above SLO s address the SUNY General Education (GE) Natural Science requirement Understanding of the methods scientists use to explore natural phenomena, including observation, hypothesis development, measurement and data collection, experimentation, evaluation of evidence, and employment of mathematical analysis 5) & 6) Application of scientific data, concepts, and models in one of the natural sciences 2), 4), 5) & 6) Related Course SLO 12. COURSE GRADE Based on the above measures, how will the final course grade be calculated? 5 Class Examinations 50% Classroom exams given approximately every 3 weeks will be used to assess student achievement. Exams will be correlated with topics studied in lecture. Lab Work 25% Twelve two-hour laboratory investigations, each requiring a written report, will be used to assess student learning during this component of the course. Comprehensive Final Exam 25% Overall assessment of the students acquired knowledge and understanding by means of a comprehensive written final exam. 13. INSTRUCTIONAL METHODS: List the different instructional methods you might use, in the course of the semester. List supplementary learning options, if any Textbook reading assignments and problem solving assignments are regularly given supplemented by classroom lectures and demonstrations of scientific principles. Problem solving will be emphasized utilizing pre-worked illustrative examples in the text as well as in-class worked problems by the instructor. Only non-calculus mathematics is used. Laboratory work in small lab teams is done to support the lecture component of the course. Cooperative learning is promoted to enhance this aspect of learning.. Use of Math-Physics Tutorial Center and the Physics Workshop to augment the class hours is encouraged.
