•Course Purpose
The aim of this course is to deepen students’ understanding of basic Physics of waves and optics, and to cultivate their ability to apply Physics knowledge. Problem solving methods are introduced.

This tutorial focuses on mechanical and electromagnetic waves, as well as optics. Students will train on both conceptual understanding and problem solving. Understanding waves and optics is important as preparation for more advanced subjects, for example in quantum mechanics, chemistry, and engineering.

•Prerequisite Subjects
The three courses Fundamentals of Physics I, II and III. Since this tutorial is designed to accompany Fundamentals of Physics IV, it is highly recommended to register for this course too if you have not already passed it.
