Introduction to Physics I
A first university physics course primarily for students not intending to pursue a Specialist or Major program in Physical or Mathematical Sciences. Topics include: classical kinematics & dynamics, momentum, energy, force, friction, work, power, angular momentum, oscillations, waves, sound.
- MAT135H1/MAT137Y1/MAT157Y1 recommended, but may be required prerequisite in 2nd year Physics courses
- Recommended preparation
- MCV4U Calculus & Vectors/MHF4U Functions & Calculus, SPH4U Physics

- Breadth requirement
- Distribution requirement

For the Practicals, these will be partly doable asynchronously, but there will be a portion for which synchronous participation is required. Students are required to participate in synchronous midterm assessment quizzes online on Tuesday evenings from 8:10-8:40pm, Toronto time. All students are expected to clear their schedules at these times. If a conflict is unavoidable, individual accommodations will involve a scheduled private make-up quiz of the same duration and difficulty level, delivered by the instructor or one of the TAs via video teleconferencing software. During these make-up quizzes, students will be required to have their camera and microphone on, in order to show a T-card and provide answers orally, and the invigilator may ask follow-up questions in real time.
