PHYS 30200 - Puzzles, Strategy Games, and Problem solving in the Physical Sciences (Honors Course)


This course will explore scientific problem solving by comparing and contrasting it with problem solving in two other domains: puzzles and strategy developing representations, defining the problem, using heuristics, and evaluation solutions. Strategy games will be used as a way to practice problem-solving skills in a domain that can be quickly learned. No credit toward a physics major.

Preparation for Course
P: successful completion of General Education Areas I and II.

Cr. 3.
Notes
Honors equivalent of PHYS 302.
To register in an honors course, students must have Honors Program eligibility or instructor’s permission.
