    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This was one of the funnest, most practical science courses a person can take. Since this is a conceptual physics class, it was pretty light on the algebra for the most part, so it's ideal for people who don't like math. Plus, there were a lot of real-world applications--most of it was real-world. Fana was an excellent instructor, and I hope she's at Aims for a long time to come.

    Course highlights:

    What /didn't/ I learn! Physics is the study of how our physical world works, from gravity to satellites to water power to nuclear physics to exactly why punching a brick wall would hurt more than punching a sand bag or how a hydraulic lift raises a 2-ton car. The course also, directly and indirectly, addressed many science and pseudo-science fallacies. I wish everyone would take this class, the world would be a smarter place.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the assigned material. Come to class--since it is a conceptual course, the additional explanations and ability to ask questions to clarify is important. (Plus you need to be in class for the labs!) Take notes.This class pushes you to understand the concepts and apply them to a different situation than what is directly shown in the text, so don't just memorize the exact examples, strive to understand the underlying principles. You'll do well on the tests and will start to understand the physics you see everyday.
