    | Would not recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course is easy, but the information is hard to retain because it is given in such a boring, monotonous manner!

    Course highlights:

    I honestly learned nothing. The labs were difficult to understand especially because there were so many people who didn't speak English persisting that you help them, when you had work of your own to do.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Try to stay awake during the lectures although the are boring... They were very helpful the first few weeks then it becomes unbearable to pay attention.

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to anyone with an interest in physics. It is a challenging course that covers a wide range of classical mechanics and some more modern physics such as light, energy, and gravity. It is a great introductory course for students pursuing careers in physics and also gives students a great wake up call as to weather or not pursue a career in physics.

    Course highlights:

    this course covered Newtonian Mechanics (kinematics), projectile motion, vectors, laws of motion, forces, energy, power, momentum and impulse, circular motion and rotation, torque, oscillations and pendulums, gravitation and orbits of planets, spring constants, and much more. The most enjoyable out of all this information was probably projectiles. They were straight forward problems for the most part and you only really used up to 4 equations to solve, which is much less work that other chapters in this course.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Put in the work. The only was to get good at physics is by doing it. There is no other way. If you do not understand something, make sure you learn it somehow, because everything you learn throughout the course builds on itself and you have to use previous learned equations and information to solve different problems.
