Richard Feynman gave his two years undergraduate physics in Caltech in a completely new way from the traditional undergraduate physics course in early nineteen sixties. Now it is fifty years after Feynman gave his famous Lecture on Physics. It is time to present a completely new way of teaching physics. Feynman said, “We prefer to take first the complete laws…… opposite to the historical approach”. We follow what he said, and present complete laws of physics: quantum field theory right from the beginning in a way that any first year undergraduate in science and engineering can follow. As Feynman said many times in his lectures physics is not mathematics. The most important crucial physics should be taught with minimum mathematics. Mathematics are used only when it is absolutely necessary. The quantum field theory is presented with minimum mathematics simply as seven frameworks, which we denote as QF1, QF2, QF3, QF4, QF5, QF6, and QF7. Or in short,1,2,3,4,5,6, 7, The most fundamental property of matter is probability (QF1), and the second fundamental property is quantum duality (QF2) . There are three and only three ways to influence the motion of matter (QF3). Four macroscopic variables (QF4), and five fundamental variables (QF 5) are used describe matter. There are six Symmetries (QF6) and finally the action principle S (QF7) In part I, we use this quantum framework to formulate classical physics. In part II we use this quantum framework to explain our daily activity, as our daily activity is also governed by quantum physics.
