Important note to students taking 100 level PHYS courses in Term 1:

The course previously known as PHYS101 is now called PHYS131 and does not contain a lab component. For the enriched program, 107 is now 106 and as well has no lab component. Those who want to or need to take a lab, should consider PHYS119 which will be offered in both T1 and T2. Please bear with us if not all web-pages reflect this change, but the scheduling tools are up to date
