This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I would recommend it for physics concentrators who feel that they are strong in math (calculus) and are looking for a challenge.
Course highlights:
I learned the scope of basic physics from vectors to angular momentum with a heavy focus on a mathematical approach to each problem. The highlights were the demonstrations and the interactions with the other students and teacher.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
To succeed, go to the workshops and the TA hours because familiarity and asking questions is the best way to learn. I would also recommend watching physics youtube videos and generally searching the internet to help find solutions to the problems.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
The homework assignments were the most fulfilling part, as they challenged you with interesting and often difficult problems.
Course highlights:
This is not the easiest course, but it expands your knowledge of mechanics and you get to become close with your fellow classmates as you work together on homework and labs!
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Make a homework/study group with other students!
