description
Electro
m
agnetic
interactions
play
a
central
role
in
d
e
ter
m
ining
the
structure
of
the
natural
world
and
are
the
foundation
of
m
o
st
current
and
e
m
ergent
techno
l
og
y
,
therefore
a
basic
understanding
of
electricity
and
m
agnetism
(E&M)
is
i
m
portant.
In
this
course
the
student
is
quickly
introduced
to
a
world
in
which
al
m
o
st
all
of
the
quantities
are
invisible;
they
are
either
m
icroscopic
such
as
electrons
or
abstractions
such
as
field,
flux,
and
potential.
Integral

u
s
beco
m
es
a
central
m
athe
m
atical
tool,
and
students
are
asked
to
apply
it
in
unfa
m
iliar
wa
y
s,
such
as
calculating
the
path
integral
or
surface
integral
of
a
quantity
expressed
as
a
vector
dot
product.

the
basic
concepts
and
applications
of
vector
