PHYSICS.

WILLIAM JAMES RAYMOND, B.S., Associate Professor of Physies.
SILAS ELLSWORTH COLEMAN, B.S., M.A., Head of the Science De-

partment and Instructor in Physics, Oakland High School.
THOMAS Calvin McKay, Ph.D., Instructor in Physics.
RAYMOND BARRINGTON ABBOTT, Assistant in Physics.
HENRY NEAL YOUNG, Assistant in Physics.

The physical laboratories will be open daily, except Saturdays, from 9 to 12 and from 1 to 4. Students who choose courses in

Physics are strongly urged to devote enough time to this subject to secure a real gain from the effort.

The laboratory fee will be $5. See page 6.

The laboratory courses offered are not intended to remove deficiencies incurred in regular university courses.

1. Laboratory Exercises in Matriculation Physics. Mr. COLEMAN. A laboratory course with lectures and discussions; intended to

supplement incomplete preparation for the matriculation ex-
amination in physics. Approved work in this course will
carry credit for the laboratory part of the requirement; but
the examination upon principles must be taken August or

January
M Tu W Th F, 9 and 1. 13 South Hall.
M Tu W Th F, 10-12, 2-4. 1 and 2 East Hall.

2. Laboratory Exercises in General Physics.

Dr. MCKAY. Selections, adapted to the preparation and the needs of the indi

vidual student, from the laboratory exercises of the Freshman and Sophomore courses, and intended primarily for students who do not take these courses regularly in the University. No university credit can be obtained toward the regular Freshman course. In the regular Sophomore course, approved note-book record individual exercises may be accepted, at the discretion of the instructor then in

charge. M Tu W Th F, 9-12; 1-4. 4 East Hall.

3. Advanced Laboratory.

Associate Professor RAYMOND. Laboratory work on special lines, offering opportunities for ad

vanced study. This course is especially planned for attendants upon previous summer courses. Open to qualified students, after consultation and arrangements made individually with Professor Raymond. Credit may be given at the dis

cretion of the department. M Tu W Th F, 9-12, 1-4. 7 South Hall.

4. Selected Topics in Sound, Light, and Electricity.

Associate Professor RAYMOND. Lectures, with experimental illustration. This course will pre

sent numerous experiments which may be performed with simple appliances. In addition, topics connected with the more recent developments of physics will be disclosed, also with experimental illustration. Many of these topics are not as yet fully treated in the text-books, but are found only in the current journals. Opportunity will thus be given, in connection with this course, to make use of original sources of information. Among the topics to be treated are sound waves, light waves and electric oscillations, and the use of mechanical models to give a clearer conception of their characteristics; and resonance, with particular application to

wireless telegraphy. 2 units. M Tu W Th F, 11. 13 South Hall.

5. The Teaching of Elementary Physics.

Mr. COLEMAN. Lectures and discussions. A course for teachers and those in

terested in the teaching of physics. Among the topics to be discussed are: Aims of physics teaching; the different phases of the work and their relation to one another; differentiation of high-school physics into two parallel courses, adapted to different types of pupils; the laboratory course; laboratory equipment and management; value of historical material; order of subjects; some constituents of the course -their place, purpose, and presentation; some common errors; comparative study of text-books; reference books and periodicals; new apparatus for the class room and the labor

atory. 1 unit. Tu Th, 3. 13 South Hall.

ASTRONOMY.

ROBERT GRANT AITKEN, M.A., Sc.D., Astronomer, Lick Observatory,

Mount Hamilton, California.

1. Modern Astronomy.

Astronomer AITKEN. A lecture course on the more important problems of present

day astronomy, the instruments and methods in use in modern observatories and the aims of astronomical research. Open

to all attendants at the Summer Session. 2 units. M Tu W Th F, 10. 1 Observatory. 2. Course for Teachers.

Astronomer AITKEN. This course is designed especially for those interested in the

teaching of astronomy in secondary schools. It will consist of informal lectures and practical exercises in observing and computing. The topics to be presented will include: the subject matter for a high-school course in astronomy; methods of teaching, with suggestions for the construction of simple observing apparatus; practical use of the sextant, and, if feasible, of the transit instrument, in determining time and latitude; suggestions for numerical exercises; a discussion of the standard text-books and of the current literature of the science. Open to a limited number of students who possess a knowledge of elementary astronomy, or

who are attending the lectures in Course 1. 2 units. M Th, 11, and 3 observatory periods to be arranged. 1 Observ

atory.

GEOGRAPHY.

RULIFF STEPHEN HOLWAY, A.B., M.S., Assistant Professor of Physical

Geography,

1. Field Work in Physiography. Assistant Professor HOLWAY. A field study of the Santa Cruz Mountains as a type of the

Coast Province of California. The itinerary will be as follows: Starting on the east side of the mountains south of Stanford University, an irregular southerly course will be taken to the ocean near Santa Cruz, thence northwesterly along or near the coast for about fifty miles, and finally

recrossing the mountains to the starting point. The more important physiographic problems studied will be

fault zone topography along the rift of 1906, the old peneplains near the tops of the mountains, the dissection into cañons and ridges, a cross-section of Ben Lomond Mountain, the elevated ocean strands, and the drainage conditions of the lower Pescadero basin involving uplift and depression, piracy,

etc. Admission on application to instructor in charge. Laboratory

fee $2.50. Students may register for the entire 6 weeks or for either the first or the second 3 weeks. At least ten must register by June 1, at which time the camping fee of $60 (or $30 for three weeks) is payable to the instructor. 3 to 6 units.

1. Elements of Chemistry.

Assistant Professor MORGAN. A general introduction to the subject, designed to present its

essential facts and principles with especial reference to the chemistry of daily life and that part of the subject which is an essential of a general education. Daily lectures, experimentally illustrated, will be delivered by the instructor, in addition to which each student will carry on a course of laboratory work.
