    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Buxton is an excellent professor with a unique teaching strategy that really helped me not only learn, but understand that material. He's almost always in a good mood, too, and any student knows that when the instructor is in a good mood, the class is always more enjoyable. I can be hard, but it's definitely worth it.

    Course highlights:

    Buxton uses a cyclic approach to physics, meaning that he goes over the material multiple times with increasing difficulty as opposed to learning everything about a certain aspect and then never touching it again until the final. Each cycle takes about five weeks, and then Buxton starts off again with the first aspect he covered, but adds more in-depth knowledge to the subject. It keeps everything fresh and covers the basics multiple times before building on that knowledge.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    All of the homework isn't due until the end of the semester, but don't wait until then to do it! There's one problem for each lecture in each cycle, totaling just over thirty problems. It doesn't sound like much, but these problems are HARD. Go see Buxton during office hours and he'll be more than willing to help you. Once the homework is done, you'll have more time to focus on the final exam and won't have to spend the last week of classes panicking about physics homework.
