Abstract Title: A New Sequence of Advanced Laboratory Courses at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh
Abstract: Two credit sophomore, junior, and senior advanced laboratory courses have recently replaced a one credit Modern Physics lab and a three credit Experimental Physics course. Physics Lab I, II, and III are offered each spring and are coordinated with the two theory courses physics majors have most recently completed or are currently enrolled in. Physics Lab I for sophomores, for example, contains experiments in Modern Physics (a class they completed in the Fall semester) and Classical Mechanics (a class in which they are concurrently enrolled). Junior-Senior level theory courses are offered on an alternate year basis; therefore, Physics Labs II and III typically contain experiments from two of the following four courses – Optics, Thermodynamics & Statistical Mechanics, Electricity & Magnetism, and Quantum Mechanics.
