Starting in Fall 2024, there's a new sequence for Introductory Physics at Duke that will impact students in life sciences and pre-health programs who take Physics as part of their degree paths. Physics 121 and 122 will be phased in to replace the current two-semester introductory sequence of Physics 141/142. Physics 121 and 122 differ from 141/142 by featuring a "math along the way" format where Math modules are built into the courses and calculus is not a prerequisite. The new sequence will also employ student-centered, active learning pedagogies. Join the info session to learn more about these new courses!
