    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If you don't need Physics for your degree, I would advise that you don't take it. Physics is a math heavy course and attendance is required in order to pass. Physics will also require you to visualize the examples. But for those that do require physics, the course is very interesting to learn about. You'll learn about invisible forces that act on objects.

    Course highlights:

    Some of the things I have learned from Physics is how pulleys and springs worked. I started out learning things like displacement, speed, time, and velocity at the beginning of the course. I ended the class learning things like gravity, frequencies, and equilibrium. I also relearned how to do some trigonometry like the sine, cosine, and tangent, as well as angles.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice for those that are considering this course is to study! Make sure you go to class, take notes, do your homework, and study! Most teachers don't require you to have a textbook but I would at least rent one, so if you don't know about a certain topic, you could read about it. Bond with your classmates. Plan study sessions for outside of class. Trust me, it will benefit you. But if you really need help on a subject, ask for help! Talk to your teacher and/ or get a tutor for additional help.

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    In my opinion, physics is a very rigorous course, but professor Steckelberg does an outstanding job of helping his students fully understand the material. I learned many things that I will be able to incorporate in my future studies.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that hard work, dedication, and perseverance pays off in difficult classes, such as physics. Professor Steckelberg is unfortunately fighting cancer, something people hope to never have to endure. Although Mr. Steckelberg has been put through such trials and tribulations, he continues to strive to teach his students everyday. Not only have I learned about physics, I've learned how to appreciate the little things life has to offer.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You must show up to class and take notes. Listen to professor Steckelberg's lectures and if you have any questions or concerns make sure you ask your professor. If you are looking for an easy A to be handed to you on a silver platter, this is not the class for you.
