ASTRONOMY.

WILLIAM F. MEYER, B.S., Instructor in Astronomy.

Lower Division.

1. Elements of Astronomy.

Mr. MEYER. An introductory course, giving the facts and principles under

lying the science of Astronomy in all its branches; fundamental problems of practical Astronomy-latitude-timelongitude; our knowledge of the Solar System-the sunplanets-comets; the nature of Stellar Systems; the starsclusters-nebulae; recent progress in modern astronomy.

2 units. M Tu W Th F, 9. 1 Observatory.

2. Practice Course in the Use of Astronomical Instruments.

Mr. MEYER. Supplement to Course 1. Practice in observing and use of

astronomical instruments. 6 hours. 1 unit. The observatory is open for this course one evening and one

afternoon per week. The course is open to students who are taking or have taken Course 1 or its equivalent. The number admitted will be limited.

Upper Division. 103. Teachers' Course.

Mr. MEYER. Discussion of methods of teaching the fundamental principles

of elementary Astronomy in the high school; methods of conducting observing classes in the high school with or without astronomical instruments; practical work in observing with the instruments of the observatory. Intended to meet the increasing demand for teachers in the science of

Astronomy in secondary schools. 2 units. Three lectures and one observing period per week. Hours to

be arranged when the class meets for organization, Mon

day, June 26th, at 10 o'clock. 11 Observatory. Open to students who are taking or have taken Course 1 or its

equivalent.

PHYSICS.

Ralph S. MINOR, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Physics.
CHARLES C. DANFORTH, B.S., Instructor in Physics in the Berkeley

High School.
LUDWIG REHFUESS, B.S., Assistant in Physics.
GEORGE H. BARDSLEY, B.S., Assistant in Physics.

The physical laboratories will be open daily, except Saturdays,

from 9 to 12 and from 1 to 4. The fee for Course 1 is $7.50. Students enrolling in other laboratory courses will be required to make a deposit of $15; from this will be deducted all breakage and a fee, in no case amounting to over $10, which will depend upon the amount of work taken by the individual student. The balance will be refunded.

1. Elements of Physics.

Mr. DANFORTH. A first course in physics designed to present the essential facts

and principles of each of the main subdivisions of the subject and to illustrate their connection with the facts and processes of every-day life. Lectures, with experimental illustration by the instructor; recitations and laboratory exercises daily. Credit for matriculation Physics 11 will

be given for the satisfactory completion of the course. M Tu W Th F, 9 and 1. 13 South Hall. M Tu W Th F, 10-12; 2-4. 1 East Hall.

2. Physical Measurement.

Associate Professor MINOR. A laboratory course in general Physics offering opportunity

for experimental work in mechanics, properties of matter, heat, sound, light, electricity and magnetism, requiring quantitative results. The course, in detail, will be adapted to the needs of individual students and may cover any portion of the laboratory work of the regular session. University credit, not to exceed four units, may be given for the

course.

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

103. Physical Optics.

Associate Professor MINOR. Individual experimental study of one or more of the following

selected topics in light,-interference, diffraction, the resolving power of optical instruments, methods of producing and detecting plane, circularly, and ellipitically polarized light, metallic reflection. (Hours and credit to be arranged.)

104. Course for Teachers.

Associate Professor MINOR. Conferences with actual or prospective teachers of physics;

discussions of the practical problems connected with the teaching of physics in the secondary schools-such as the equipment of the physical laboratory, the selection and use of textbooks, relative values of demonstration, recitation, and laboratory work in a well organized course together with the experimental presentation of selected topics. 1

unit. MW F, 11. 13 South Hall.

205, Spectrum Analysis.

Associate Professor MINOR. Open to properly qualified students who wish to familiarize

themselves with the use of spectroscopic apparatus, or to take up the individual study of practical problems. Students desiring to work along the lines indicated should, in all cases, make their arrangements with Professor Minor, either by conference or correspondence before the opening of the Summer Session, in order that the actual time of residence may be most advantageously utilized.

GEOGRAPHY.

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

Geography Cary T. WRIGHT, Ph.B., Head of Department of Science, John C.

Fremont High School, Oakland.

101. Commercial Geography.

Mr. WRIGHT. San Francisco as a commercial port. Special attention will be

paid to the commerce of this port and to conditions exist ing on the Pacific Coast as illustrations of the general laws of commerce; an analysis of the commerce of the port with special reference to those countries whose trade is singht and those countries which compete for this trade; great trade routes of the world and the relation of San Francisco to them; natural and artificial conditions of the harbors of great world ports compared with those of San Francisco; excursions to the water front of San Francisco and Oakland, including a visit to a trans-Pacific liner, if sailing dates will permit; selected readings from Gregory, Keller, and Bishop's Physical and Commercial Geography, United States Government reports, the reports of various harbor

governing bodies, etc. 2 units. M Tu W Th F, 1. 113 ('alifornia Hall.

102. Physical Geography.

Mr. WRIGHT. A teachers' course. A discussion of methods of teaching and

of subject matter with the purpose of aiding teachers and prospective teachers in actual work in the class room, field, and laboratory: the field excursion-purpose, methods, difficulties, necessity, preparation; illustrative one-hour excursions; one or more half-day or all-day excursions on Saturdays; the process of soil making and the art of soil conservation with experiments which may be used in the laboratory or class room; simple scientific experiments such as pupils or teacher may perform to illustrate the atmosphere in its economic relations; the use of the globe with special reference to latitude and longitude and various map projections; the use of topographic maps with special reference to methods of introducing them; how a region may be contoured with home-made apparatus; the best books for a

small library and methods of using them. 2 units. M Tu W Th F, 3. 113 California Hall.

103. Field Work in the Coast Ranges.

Assistant Professor HOLWAY. Special research work for advanced students in the evolution

of topography in the Coast Ranges. Open to men who are qualified for field study. The first party will start about June 1, and work in the area southwest of Bakersfield. The second party in July will investigate the glaciated regions of the Northern Coast Ranges. Details of time and credit to be arranged with the instructor in charge. Properly qualified graduate students may register for independent work. (203).
