Course Description

PHYS 102x serves as an introduction to electricity and magnetism, following the standard second semester college physics sequence. Part 2 begins with the nature of the magnetic field and how it is created by current distributions and magnetic materials. Next, Faraday’s law of induction is described, as well as some of its applications and interesting effects. Finally, inductors and AC circuits are covered, including RLC circuits, reactances of circuit elements, and resonance. PHYS 102.2x consists of 5 weekly learning sequences, each with ~1.5 hours of video lectures, conceptual lecture problems, and online homework questions. The course concludes with an online exam during the 6th week.

In summary, the Professor's teaching method is generally effective because he communicates his own understanding of the subject matter clearly to the audience, via the blackboard. Overall, my learning interest was sustained continuously throughout Parts 1 and 2 of the online course and the Instructor's enthusiasm for Physics is clearly evident. Even though I am a Physics major who completed my university studies several years ago, I was able to learn some new content from this course.

When i took it , this course was a repetition of the second half of the first course of this series . It did however go into more depths at certain points and continue on slightly . For me the repetition was good , so i very much enjoyed taking this course . If you have some background of EM , you may take this course directly if you want to brush up on magnetic fields . It may make sense to merge both courses together .

Jason Hafner is really a great instructor, master of interleaving the most complex math concepts with funny breaks. The content is well structured and very deep, helping students to learn both low and high level concepts. The experiments are fun and memorable. Hafner is successful in exploiting the peculiarities of MOOCs technologies to improve the effectiveness of the learning experience.
