At Lawrence, I have taught several physics (and even some non-physics) courses.
Quantum MechanicsA junior level quantum mechanics course, taught spin-first following John Townsend. Can one photon really be emitted by two lasers? Yes!
Taught Fall, 2012, Fall, 2011
OpticsPractical optics, with a focus on innovation. Covers such fun skills as use of spatial light modulators and interferrometric metrology, in addition to imaging, beam manipulation, and polarization.
Taught Spring, 2012 with Jeff Collett, Spring 2010 with Shannon O'Leary. Previous (non-practical) incarnation in Winter 2008.
Electricity and MagnetismThank you David Griffiths for Electrodynamics!
Taught Spring 2012, Spring 2010, Spring 2008
Principles of Classical PhysicsSecond term of calculus-based introductory physics, heavily influenced by Eric Mazur.
Taught Winter, 2012, Winter, 2011
Advanced LaboratoryIn which physics majors learn the practice of experimental physics.
Taught Winter, 2012 with Pasad Kulatunga, Spring 2011, Spring 2009, and in Winter 2008 with John Brandenberger
Biological PhysicsAn upper division course for physicists, biologists and chemists on building quantitative models to understand quantitative biological data (with apologies to Phillips, Kondev and Theriot).
Taught Spring 2011 and Spring 2009.
Freshman StudiesLawrence University’s hallmark course.
Taught Fall 2009, Fall 2008
Foundations of Physics IIntroductory physics course focused on conceptual understanding, heavily influenced by Eric Mazur.
Taught Fall 2009, Fall 2008, Fall 2007
Physics on Your FeetQuick thinking, intuitive approach to physics for juniors.
Taught Spring, 2011, Spring 2010, Winter 2009, Spring 2008
