College Physics II – OLI

The College Physics 2 course is an algebra-based Physics course covering electricity and magnetism, optics, and modern physics. It covers all the topics included in the second semester of College Physics and includes formative assessments with scaffolding and summative assessments at the end of each module.

The course is grounded in real-world examples, interactives, lecture videos, Phet simulations, and scaffolded practice problems all designed in a logical flow.

Note: For successful completion of this course it is recommended that students are familiar with College Physics 1 or its equivalent.

These materials are available as an OLI course.

  • Open Learning Initiative (OLI) courses are designed by learning scientists at Carnegie Mellon University. They use data and research insights to develop, test, and improve OER course materials that effectively support learning.
