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.
