    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Heyward does a really good job of breaking down physics problems into their components. He works homework problems and shows students the process of analyzing problems and use critical thinking skills.

    Course highlights:

    Heyward will start sections off by performing physics experiments in front of the class. I learned about circular motion which is basically magic.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Tutors will help you get an A or B depending on how good you are at visualizing problems. The homework can be pretty extensive but are good practice for the tests.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    As a college senior entering PA school in the fall, I am glad this course was a part of my degree audit. It seems unnecessary at first to have students in Biology majors take physics. Yet, there are many instances where I can apply what I learned in PY 211 to my everyday life and to impact-based injuries that I may see as a PA. This class also challenges critical thinking skills that are necessary for succeeding in any graduate school environment or career.

    Course highlights:

    The class demonstrations truly aided in understanding the concepts explained in this course. It is one thing to know an equation and how to use it, but it really helps to see how the equation applies to a real-life scenario. The tests consist of a few conceptual questions based on concepts observed in the class demonstrations. This course focuses on the mechanical side of physics (i.e. momentum, kinematics, force).

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The homework and practice tests are the best way to make sure you understand the material instead of just memorizing it. For each test, you are allowed to make an equation sheet, so this course is much focused on application than memorization. Make sure to keep organized notes so that when test time comes around you can see what equations match up with each concept. The tests are multiple choice, but can be tricky because the professors answer the question using the wrong formula and put that answer as a choice. Because of this, its very important to understand the concepts behind each equation.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is very difficult but the professor and TA's are awesome and if you seek help; they will be right there to guide you.

    Course highlights:

    That anything worth understanding and being able to teach others takes practice.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Review material each day and visit the tutoring center.
