The Physics Program
The Las Positas College Physics Department offers a wide range of physics courses to meet any student's needs.
Physics 10 is intended for non-science majors. It is a wonderful GE course that teaches the very basics of physics without the use of trigonometry or calculus. This course is also accompanied by a lab course, Physics 10L, that can be taken concurrently or after Physics 10.
The Physics 2 series is geared towards biological science and allied health majors who need a basic understanding of physics without a rigorous calculus derivation. This series consists of parts A and B with the laboratory integrated into the courses.
The Physics 1 series is geared towards physics, chemistry, and engineering majors. This four part series (A - D) uses calculus to teach mechanics through modern physics, and includes an integrated laboratory component.
