    Different Movements for objects

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Awful professor. Did not explain the material well at all. I have spent a minimum of 6 hours every week on his class alone in tutoring sessions and his "help" sessions. He is a very harsh grader and seems to want everyone to fail his course.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were talking to other students and realizing that all of us had C's at best some lower than that.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you can avoid taking him, do it. If you can't, make sure he knows who you are, go to his office hour and show him your face and familiarize yourself with him. Attend his help sessions, go to his office for help and also go to tutoring sessions. This is a tough class.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It is a challenging course. The professor gives exams that barely anyone can get an A in. This scares away many students but if you stay in the class he offers many opportunities to bring your grade up.

    Course highlights:

    The material is interesting in my opinion and although it's challenging, it is rewarding when you finally understand a problem. Almost like figuring out a mystery.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not give up even if tests don't go well.
