Electricity and Magnetism, or PHYS102.1x, serves as an introduction to electricity and magnetism following the standard second semester college physics sequence. It begins with electric charge in matter, the forces between charges, the electric field, Gauss’s Law, and the electric potential. Electric current and resistance are introduced, and then the course moves to the magnetic field, Ampere’s Law, and induction. PHYS102x consists of around 5 weekly learning sequences, each with ~1.5 hours of video lectures, conceptual lecture problems, and online homework questions. The course concludes with an online exam during the 6th week.
