Electric and magnetic interactions
The curriculum has been restructured so that students will have the necessary fundamental understanding of charges and fields before going on to more complex issues. Qualitative reasoning and quantitative analysis are discussed equally in order to provide a meaningful conceptual framework within which the quantitative work makes more sense. Atomic-level analysis is stressed and electrostatics and circuits are unified. Desktop experiments can be conducted at home or in the classroom and are tightly integrated with the theoretical treatment.
