    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This was the hardest course I ever took. I would recommend the professor and the lecture but the associated lab was awful. It was graded very very hard and it took up a vast majority of your time. However, the lecture was great and it challenged me to think about the way things work.

    Course highlights:

    There is physics in everything. I became very aware of the physical phenomena around me. Chemistry and biology related very closely to physics and it was eye opening.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Expect to spend a lot of time doing lab reports and doing homework. You have to do the homework or else you will fail for sure.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Weckesser has a code of classroom grades to live by but he is very invested in your success as a student. Ask him for help! He is always willing to re-explain a problem or concept you are struggling with.

    Course highlights:

    Probably the first lesson I was blown away by was one describing the consequences of kinetic and static friction. I remember sitting in his classroom and imagining my feet moving my body because static friction stops them from moving forward, which helps me move forward. It was the coolest thing to thick about for weeks.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Continue to push yourself and complete the homework. You will have to apply yourself to really do well in this class. But when you do apply yourself, and you start looking at the physics problems like they are puzzle problems, the world becomes a whole lot cooler to look at and understand.
