34 SOUTHERN BRANCH.
Elementary Physics. This subject is given in the third year. Object: The object of the course is to give the students a general survey of the field of Physics, including a study of Mechanics, Heat, Electricity and Magnetism, Sound and Light.
Text: The text used is Millikan and Gale's First Course in Physics. The laboratory manual used is Millikan and Gale's. References: Hopkins' Experimental Science, Deschanel Natural Philosophy, Barnes' Practical Accoustics, Edser Heat for Advanced Students, Daniell Text Book of Principles of Physics, Thompson Magnetism and Electricity; also Light by the same author.
Three hours per week thruout the year are given to recitation, and two hours for laboratory work. The recitation work consists largely of the working of problems involving the laws of Physics. Class room experiments are performed by the teacher whenever necessary to make a principle more camprehensible. The fifty experiments outlined in the manual are performed by the students individually, or in groups when necessary. Each student takes notes on the experiments at the time of performing them and records his results in a record book outside of the laboratory.
General Chemistry. This consists of an elementary course in general chemistry and qualitative analysis. The elements of chemical theories and of important generalization in the field of chemistry are taken up in connection with the properties of the elements and their compounds. Considerable attention is given to the solving of problems and the writing of chemical equations.
Three recitations and two hours in the laboratory per week thruout the year.
