The course covers the fundamentals of physics on the university level. This semester-long course includes all the material covered in Fundamentals of Physics I and II. Accordingly, students considering enrolling should take into account the heavy course load. When in doubt, students are advised to consult with a Physics advisor.

1There is some overlap in the content of this and other courses. For details, see Overlapping Courses.

This is a required course in many study programs. Students who wish to switch from this course to Fundamentals of Physics I (20113) or Fundamentals of Physics for Biology Students I (20123) may do so (for a fee) until the end of the tenth week of the semester. Depending on the requirements of the study program, students may also have to take Fundamentals of Physics II (20114) or Fundamentals of Physics for Biology Students II (20124).

2Students who took 5-point high-school Physics and Mathematics and passed with high grades (within the last 5 years), are advised to contact a Physics advisor before enrolling.
