This includes a copy of reading materials, but does not include textbook material, exams, quizzes, or any other information found on external links within your course. (Optional)
Course materials are accessed online, and all assignments must be submitted online. Optional course readings may be available but do not include the self-check assignments or graded assignments.
BYU Independent Study does not offer Applied Physics Laboratories. If students require a physics laboratory, it is recommended that they enroll concurrently in an introductory applied physics laboratory at their local college, in which case they will need to correlate the topics covered in their laboratory with those in this course.
