    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Is a difficult course, has multiple errors in course documents, quizzes, etc. I would recommend using a tutor. This is not one of those online classes you can put little effort into. Part of course requirement is to maintain a 60% average for in person exams, which will be your greatest challenge.

    Course highlights:

    I actually really enjoyed learning Physics. Like for example, that water flows faster with a smaller diameter pipe, or the differences between static and dynamic friction. I also really enjoyed the online math simulators, you could see physics in action!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would recommend getting a math tutor. Rio Salado has free tutoring on campus, which you should take advantage of. I would also recommend spending more time on this course each week, I felt that by the time the next assignment was due, I had forgotten the previous knowledge. The second half of the course is more difficult material, but has an overall easier workload.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This was one of the best classes! After this class I wanted to be a physics major. There are tons of examples that we do in class and you always feel comfortable in participating. The teacher has great visual examples!

    Course highlights:

    We learned the basics of everything in the physics field, so this includes Newton's Law of Motion, sound waves, heat mechanics, and electricity.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Honestly, I would take this class. It is eye opening to everything that the world has to offer and how it really works. This would be great for anyone going into Engineering. Once you are in the class, study! Do the homework the day that it is assigned so that you can ask questions about it later. Don't stress and have study groups.
