Course in Physics." The laboratory manual used is Millikan and Gale's. References: Hopkins' "Experimental Science," Desehanel "Natural Philosophy," Barne's "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 throughout 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 mak a principle more comprehenhensible. 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 throughout the year.
