Course Aims

This course is a preparation course for the college requirement course AP1201 General Physics I. It is designed for students in CSE, who have not taken any physics or combined science physics in DSE exams, and students who have not studied any high-school physics. This course covers some foundation knowledge in mechanics, heat and wave. The teaching of the course is mainly carried out through a series of PALSI (Peer Assisted Learning through Supplementary Instruction) tutorials. The student and course leader will have meetings to discuss the running of the tutorials.
