    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is a simple enough course and Dr. Perno does go over many examples in class which he usually puts on the tests. The only detracting factor as I see it is that it is a reverse classroom, so he leaves the teaching to you and only goes over examples that are usually more drawn out than necessary.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were that the tests and homework were online and we could work in groups together to finish them. Working together with others really helps out in this class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely work together! It helps a lot because chances are one person won't understand and if you're that person, you have a friend to help you. If you are not that person, then you have a chance to help and teach them, which is a great way to learn the subject even more yourself.

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course challenges you to think about why reasoning behind the physics rather than using formulas to plug and chug. I would recommend this course because it has helped me gain a better insight and why things move, react, and interact the way they do and how physics explains these actions.

    Course highlights:

    Although I had a difficult time truly understanding the material, I learned far beyond what I recalled in high school. Furthermore, the course applies real life examples you will likely encounter in engineering and guides you in how engineers think to solve the problems.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read every chapter before class and review the problem sets. The professor often teaches by solving the same problems in the book for a chapter so being prepared and knowing what you don't understand will help you ask useful question during class. I also recommend not waiting until the last minute to do the online homework assignments and they can be rather long. Plus if you get stuck on the homework, you still have time to go to the professor or a tutor for help.
