    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course attempts to teach students about motion, momentum and energy from a basic mechanics standpoint and is a must-take course for college students in the STEM field or anyone interested.

    Course highlights:

    The course first presents fundamental principles like the energy principle and builds up to advanced concepts from these and is easy to follow and becomes intuitive after a while.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you didn't have much of a Physics background in high school, be prepared to put in some work as this course will be challenging yet stimulating. Make use of the problem solving sessions in recitation.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The atmosphere was welcome but the course work was challenging. Everyone tried to learn the material really well for the exams, and those who didn't did not do well.

    Course highlights:

    I did not learn much in this course, because I did AP physics my senior year of high school, but I remember there being a lot more demonstrations that helped make the class easier.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do all of the homework. Make sure you're on top of all of the homework and do all the problems, even if you have to look up the answers. If you do then learn how to do the problem in the future.
