    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    As the first class in the physics honors introduction series, this class was difficult, but in the exact ways that drew me to Berkeley in the first place. The instruction was clear and planned excellently, the homework questions pushed our understandings to the absolute limit, and best of all, I made a very strong group of friends who helped get me through the class alive.

    Course highlights:

    Specifically, this class teaches an "introduction to mechanics"; this entails Newtonian mechanics problems such as masses on springs, dynamics problems, rockets, pulleys, all those great intro concepts. More broadly, though, this class teaches a general (but powerful) physics mindset. How to approach problems, what assumptions can and can't be made, and so on.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Take it, but be determined. It will likely take your all (unless you have a large amount of prior physics exposure), but you will get so much out of it. Take advantage of the textbook, as Kleppner and Kolenkow (K and K for short) is one of the most highly regarded books for the subject.
