    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you want an easy class I would recommend him. However, if you actually want to learn the material I wouldn't take his class.

    Course highlights:

    The class went by slow and we didn't get through all of the material. I didn't really learn much and the teacher struggled at times to explain what he was doing.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    He is a good a person but not really a good teacher. He grades easy but at times I found myself struggling to do homework because he didn't go over all the material and used an online textbook which was not of much use.

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because you are going to learn the little details about different devices we are using on a day-to-day basis. Whether it is the magnetic field, lenses, circuits, voltages across a certain devices/outlets This can all relate to how not to harm yourself when dealing with all things electric. This is electricity and magnetism + optics.

    Course highlights:

    It's pretty awesome learning about magnetic field lines. Learning about capacitors helps you understand and visualize what happens behind the screen on all devices touch screen. It opens your mind on the things that we are so use to using such as our smartphones. Also, the coolest thing I learned actually happened in the beginning of the semester. There are two kinds of fields, right? Electric and gravitational. The Electric field is an unimaginably larger than gravitational field (over 10^39 in a proton v. electron in a hydrogen atom), yet the gravitational field dominates every kind of mass on Earth. Why? because the gravitational forces only have positive charges, while the electric forces have positive and negative magnitudes which allows them to almost all cancel out.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read what ever book you have on physics. Remember that behind all science is the foundation of observations, curiosity, and experimentation. Try to study the subject day to day, and find an interesting way to do so. Pretend you're Isaac Newton or Galileo, knock yourself out with all the learning!

    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Easy and the instructor seemed to have interest in his subject. Helped the students with any questions. The course was fast-paced though.

    Course highlights:

    No textbook required. You just had to listen and take really good notes during lecture.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you pay attention and take great notes!
