    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because the course staff and the course really challenge you to think. This Physics course is for the life sciences, so the lecture hall is usually full of students that are on the premed-track. However, the staff do not think that the course should cater to that mindset, rather, they focus on enriching us with physics. They make sure that we are willing to challenge ourselves and really learn about the fundamental concepts in physics. At times, this course can be discouraging, but even if the grades one gets may fall short a bit, I can say that, at least for me, I walked away with much more knowledge about physics.

    Course highlights:

    I gained much understanding about how physics plays a role in certain aspects of life (i.e. blood flow, muscle contraction, etc.). In addition, I can say that I have a much greater command over the fundamental concepts of physics: Conservation of Energy, Torque, Force, Thermodynamics, etc.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Seriously put in effort. I never had to study so much for a course, but it was all worth it in the end even if some material I studied was not tested per se. It really helped me to sit down after every lecture to make a summary sheet that combines concepts I pull from lecture, the coops, and the homework! When prelim/final time comes along, it is much better to study your condensed study guide because it is much less overwhelming and you were already forced to tackle new concepts and try to understand them when you were making those summary sheets!
