PHYS 0309 - Pre-Entry Physics 1

Physics Part-time Studies Course

School of Computing and Academic Studies

To support you and your education, BCIT is adapting applied learning in formats appropriate to the unfolding global situation. All PTS classes are being delivered in an online format unless you are notified otherwise.

Course Details

This course meets the Physics 11 entrance requirement for BCIT programs. It is the student's responsibility to determine the grade they need to meet the requirement for their desired technology. This course offers an introduction to Physics and its basic principles. Emphasis is placed on good problem solving techniques and practical applications relevant to BCIT. Topics include kinematics, dynamics, equilibrium, energy, fluids, heat, electrostatics and direct current circuits. IMPORTANT NOTE - PLEASE READ PRIOR TO REGISTERING: This course serves as an upgrade course specifically for entry into BCIT programs and is not necessarily recognized as a Grade 11 or 12 equivalent by other institutions.

  1. ** IMPORTANT INFORMATION - READ CAREFULLY AND READ IN FULL BEFORE REGISTERING ** This course will accommodate both synchronous and asynchronous learners. All course content (including labs) will be delivered remotely. Synchronous sessions will be held at scheduled class times and all students are encouraged to attend. For students unable to attend synchronous classes, recordings of all lectures and course material will be distributed online. All students, whether synchronous or asynchronous, must attend synchronous midterm and final exam sessions. Additionally, both synchronous and asynchronous learners are expected to complete assignments and lab exercises according to the same schedule. Remote delivery of all course content does not require students to be physically on campus at any time. A computer with access to the internet is required. The course instructor will communicate with students through BCIT's Learning Hub therefore it is important that students sign on to the Learning Hub prior to the course start date to review any messages he may have posted. Class will not be held on the following 2 evenings - Tuesday March 16th and Thursday March 18th. Canadian Citizens and Permanent Residents are exempt from payment of the TUITION portion ($684.48) of this course.
