    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend the physics course from this professor because of his ability to help students going by going out of way and providing the required assistance whenever the students need. He has a caring nature and is always ready to help students. However, teaching physics with concepts was a point where I found him lacking because he always used the derived equations directly, rather than deriving for us to get a better idea.

    Course highlights:

    Throughout the course, I learned many different methods to solve some really difficult real-life problems. He made his labs interesting by giving us the manual and a pre-lab to prepare first, which gave us the complete overview of what would the lab be about. This helped me in completing my labs faster and more efficiently.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    To excel in this course, attending all the lecture is very important. Completing homework on time and practicing more and more problems from the textbook is required to be successful in this course. Because the professor helps a lot, I would advice to clear every small doubt related to the subject to make it less confusing and less complicated.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Prof. Mampilli tailors her course to the individual. This lets the individual maximize their learning by focusing on what they DON'T already know or understand.

    Course highlights:

    My individual highlight for this course is that I realized all the parallels between various aspects of the world around me, such as the similarities between gravity and electricity and how similar the various forms of energy are.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice is this: learn to view science for what it is -- a tool that we use to understand the world around us. That is, start every lesson by thinking about how one would expect the real world to behave, and then use science to deepen that understanding of what's happening.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend Professor Mampilli's class because she tries to personalize her teaching for the individual. This helps to maximize learning by focusing the content towards what the individual does NOT already know or understand.

    Course highlights:

    My overall highlight from this course was the realization that there are parallels between the different formulas from gravity to electricity and similarly between the various forms that energy takes.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice for this course is not to focus too narrowly on the science. In other words, remember that science is nothing more than a tool that we use to understand the world around us. No matter what subject you're studying within the realm of physics, my first step is always to think about how I expect the real world to behave, and then I apply the science to deepen my understanding of what exactly is going on.
