In this class after a brief discussion of classical physics, we will learn about the quantum world introduced by Planck, the quantum view of the atom, and the Heisenberg uncertainty principle. We will then dive into the even stranger world of quantum mechanics and probability wave functions and the concepts of parallel universes. Throughout the entire course, we will be interjecting philosophy and culture into physics to see how quantum mechanics, an esoteric physics principle, has come to influence so much popular thought.
