Here is the list of undergraduate courses I am teaching. Materials availbale at WKU Black Board

**Course description:** The first half of a basic course for students of the life sciences, covering the topics of mechanics, heat and thermodynamics, properties of matter, waves and sound. Emphasis is on an understanding of the physical principles operative in biological systems and on the application of physical methods in biology and medicine. Note: High School algebra, geometry and right triangle trigonometry required

**Course description:** Students perform physics experiments on mechanics, fluids, sound, heat and thermodynamics.

**Course description:**The second half of a basic course for students of the life sciences, covering the topics of electricity, magnetism, light optics, atomic and nuclear physics. Emphasis is on an understanding of the physical principles operative in biological systems and on the application of physical methods in biology and medicine.

**Course description:** Students perform physics experiments in electricity, magnetism and optics.

**Course description:**This is the first half of a year-long course in calculus-based physics suggested for students in the physical sciences and mathematics. Definitions, concepts, and problem solving will be emphasized. Topics include kinematics, dynamics, energy, conservation laws, rotation, harmonic motion, mechanical waves and thermodynamics.

**Course description:**Students perform physics experiments in mechanics and thermodynamics which stress the fundamental definitions and laws developed in the lecture course. Students gain experience in computerized data acquisition and data analysis using modern techniques and equipment.

**Course description:**A study of classical mechanics including equations of motion, coordinate systems, the simple harmonic oscillator, damping forces, vector algebra, momentum and energy theorems.

**Course description:**Weekly seminar series in current topics in physics. In Junior Seminar, each student will also prepare for and take comprehensive examination in physics. In Senior Seminar, Each student will prepare and give an oral presentation of current research in physics. Colloquium schedule is available here

**Course description:**A study of classical electricity and magnetism with emphasis on fields, potentials, conductors, dielectrics, steady currents and radiation.

**Course description:**The properties of the nucleus including radioactivity, radiation detectors, nuclear reactions, nuclear mass and size determination, alpha, beta, and gamma decay, nuclear models, particle accelerators, fission and elementary particles.

**Course description:**A treatment of the properties of the various forms of radiation and their interaction with, and effects on, living matter. The laboratory offers training in the monitoring of ionizing radiations and in the techniques of radioactive isotopes as applied in biological and clinical work.
