This course will require the students to complete a number of problems.
Unlike mechanics, most of the phenomena encountered in the field of
electromagnetism are not found in everyday experience - at least, not in
a form that makes the actual nature of the phenomena clear. As a
result, learning electromagnetism involves developing intuition about a
rather unintuitive area of physics. In the end, developing physical
intuition is less about getting a right answer than it is about getting a
wrong answer and then understanding why it is wrong. In an ideal
situation, this course would require the students to both work out
problems concerning the phenomena and observe various important
phenomena in the laboratory.
