II. Course Objectives


The objectives are::
a. To demonstrate competency and understanding of the basic concepts found in core physics
courses mechanics, light, color, vision and optics.
b. To utilize the scientific method for formal investigation and to demonstrate competency with
visual methods that are used to discover and verify the concepts related to content
knowledge.
c. To demonstrate skills necessary for conducting research related to content knowledge and
artistic skills.

III. Course Objectives


Students who successfully complete the course will demonstrate the following outcomes:
1. Promote an understanding of the nature and essence of physical principles
2. Foster implementation of the scientific approach in the analysis of real life situations
3. Encourage the development of problem solving techniques.
4. Foster an appreciation and enjoyment of physics as a part of universal human culture.
5. Encourage the development of practical skills
6. Provide an appreciation that physical laws are universal
7. Cultivate an appreciation of the influence of physics in everyday life.
8. Encourage an understanding of technological applications of physics and its importance
as a subject of social, economic and industrial relevance.

COURSE POLICIES: (Reference: Qassim University Students Manual 2011)


Attendance: As participation is essential to your learning in a seminar, regular attendance is expected.
You may have 2 absences from class for personal business, illness, automobile failure, weather, etc.,
without penalty. Thereafter every absence will count off your final grade.
Academic Dishonesty: All work is to be the product of one's own effort. You must give credit where
credit is due, properly identifying source material especially if it is copyrighted (photographs, illustrations, written articles, published books). Failure to properly attribute source materials, or to falsely
represent other's work as one's own will be grounds for a finding of academic dishonesty and the possible assignment of an F for the course.
Late Work: Assignments are due at the specified time for the day they are to be completed. Late
work will be graded down one letter grade for each day it is late.
Courtesy: Please be courteous of other students and the instructor by turning off your cell phone before entering class. You are expected to be engaged in the discussion.
Service for Students with Disabilities: Students with disabilities are encouraged to contact the instructor for a confidential discussion of their individual needs for academic accommodation. It is the
policy of Qassim University to provide flexible and individualized accommodation to students with
documented disabilities that may affect their ability to fully participate in course activities or to meet
course requirements.
