MAC3 and Physics

Fusion - The Unlikely Union of Physics and Composition
Students will have the opportunity to study and write about the culture of physics—its history, principles, laws, recent developments, and most important, its impact on daily life and society.

Empowering Math in Physics
Linear Equations, Quadratic Equations, Systems of linear equations, Vectors, Trigonometry.

Dive Right in to Algebra and Physics
This course is designed to develop an understanding of the phenomena of our everyday life via the laws of physics. The emphasis is not on problem-solving, although this aspect will be addressed, but on encouraging students to understand and appreciate their environment from a new perspective. The course may include topics in measurement, mechanics (motion, forces, momentum, energy, gravity and the planets) and other physics subfields such as fluid and thermal physics, electrical and magnetic phenomena, wave motion and optics, atomic and nuclear physics. GSCI 104 satisfies science general education requirements.

Powerful Outcomes: Math as the Language of Physics
An enhanced experience for students taking both courses either at different times or during the same semester. The overall goal of the LC is to further the unde4rstanding of physics with improved math skills and make mathematics more meaningful with physics applications.

"Leonardo's Invention Club" - Art History & Physics

A ten-credit coordinated studies course combining Art History and "Physics for Every Day Life" studying the applied mathematics of Renaissance painters, sculptors and architects.

This project addresses a math/physics instructional discontinuity at Butler Community College.

Patterns Across Space and Time

In this integrated-studies course, students will learn to describe patterns and change quantitatively and create mathematical models based on the physical laws that shape them.

Algebra, Reality, & the Rollercoaster
This coordinated studies course combined Intermediate Algebra with a "Physics for Everyday Life" course.
