    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Becoming proficient in basic physics helps to develop a more scientific mind. In other words, a student who is diligent in a basic physics class will be able to spot trends, use equations, and breakdown concepts to their roots. Being able to do these things is vital in any science class. For STEM majors, I highly recommend taking Physics 110.

    Course highlights:

    We learned about kinematics(how objects move and how to determine factors influencing their movement such as speed, velocity, direction, mass, and time), energy(the conservation of energy, how energy is transferred, kinetic energy(energy as a result of movement), and potential energy(energy as a result of position or orientation)), and momentum(law of conservation of momentum)

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to pay attention to trends across different concepts and criteria. If you can spot trends and explain them, you will be able to understand a wide array of course material much more easily. What I mean by this is don't simply look at a physics problem and then find an equation to match it. Take a minute to just think about the question and the concepts involved. If you are able to figure out the concepts involved in physics questions, you will be capable of tackling a wide array of physics problems, and you will be more successful on exams. Also, paying attention to the concepts involved and spotting trends will give you a strong foundation of knowledge in science as the concepts in Phyics 110 are the underlying concepts in any other science.
