360-420-DW - Winter 2020

The science part of this course is taught as a series of more-or-less independent modules. Some modules will take a second look at ideas introduced in previous courses (like Mechanics or Waves), but in a more sophisticated way. Other modules will introduce completely new ideas that can really only be approached through computation.
