This course was first taught in 2018. It is a remedial physics course for first-year students admitted to the Technological and Higher Education Institute of Hong Kong (THEi). This course covers the fundamental physics of sound, light, and heat.
I have taken an active learning approach to this course. Near the end of the course, the students were asked to design their dream house. They were required to make use of their knowledge of sound, light, and heat to make the house comfortable, safe, and healthy to live in. The students worked in groups to discuss their design and finally presented their design on the whiteboard.
