    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This was a fun class, but if I didn't start studying in the learning center with my classmates, that would not have been the case. This is because I am a theoretical mathematician. Math in physics is different; it uses a different process of solving problems, and as a result, I had difficulty adapting. However, once I adjusted to the class, I had so much fun!

    Course highlights:

    The professor was funny! His slides sometimes had jokes in them that made the lectures a lot less tedious. In the end, I learned how to solve any problems involving torque, gravity, centripetal force, velocity, pressure, temperature, and a couple more aspects!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    We always are told to read the problem carefully, and for good reason! There's going to be assumptions to make when reading some of these problems so it is actually very neccessary to read the problem a couple times first. Once you understand what to solve for, it's actually pretty easy! You literally take your given values and plug them into an equation to use! Our professor, being awesome and all, disn't have us memorize all the equations we had to use. He gave them to us on a paper for each test! This allowed us to focus more on understanding the concepts involved with each equation, which the tests so much easier! All you have to you then write down all the given values (maybe even write down what you're trying to find if that helps you), plug the appropriate values into the right equations, and you have you're answer! Lastly, study with your classmates, not only will you better understand physics, you'll have fun doing problems together and feeling likes geniuses!
