This course builds on the physics learnt in the prerequisite course DPST1021 to further develop an understanding of the mathematical description of the laws of nature and use that understanding to solve problems. It is a calculus based course where concepts and principles are learned in context, by example, and then developed through problem solving. Throughout the course, the skills of problem solving are refined by knowing when and how to apply the principles of physics, mathematics and other relevant tools. This course is examined at two levels, with Physics 1B being the lower level.
Students must pass the course DPST1021 or DPST1023 to be eligible for this course. Students must also enrol in DPST1014 which is a co-requisite or have previously completed the course.
