    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I took this course to satisfy a general education requirement. I have always enjoyed math, so I chose physics over chemistry. However, this class was less math heavy than I expected and turned out to be more of a challenge. It was very conceptual, which is not my favorite. Eventually, I did learn to appreciate the more conceptual side of math and science.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to analyze and internalize concepts, rather than just memorize equations. I really appreciated Doctor Wofford's approach to learning equations vs. learning concepts. Rather than requiring that we spend time memorizing equations, he would always give us formula sheets. Of course, eventually, after using equations over and over, I had them memorized. But the point was that we invested our energy in truly knowing the actions and reactions that were taking place.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study a little bit every day. Do a little bit of the homework every day. Don't save it all for the night before the test -- you won't actually learn anything. And just a few problems a days takes about 20 minutes.

    | Would not recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Coker does not explain his practice problems clearly and does not even explain the clicker quizzes at all. Basically, his lectures consists of writing out long equations on the board that no one understands and performing meaningless experiments. The average Exam grades are 50s to 60s with no curve.

    Course highlights:

    Dr. Coker does count homework as 25% and attendance 10% so that does benefit your grade if you attend class and do well on the homework. However, be aware that the clicker questions count your attendance, but the answer has to be right to get full credit.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take a different professor, but if you do end up taking his course then go to office hours. He may be intimidating, but if you go with valid questions then he will answer them.
