Class Description and Syllabus
PHYS 203 vs. PHYS 205
Both classes are appropriate for Physics majors and will cover essentially
the same material. Compared with PHYS 205, I will go more slowly in the
beginning, assume less mathematical preparation, and focus more on problem
solving skills at the expense of more abstract theoretical treatment.

Some will be relavant to the course material and others are just fun to play with
