    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Any class that is taught by Bruce Law will be a good class. He knows how to explain complicated things in a very simple way.

    Course highlights:

    This class is the basics of physics. The lab section really helps cement the lecture information.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do and hold on to homework. This might have problems that will be on the test. Also, use K-State's tutors, especially before tests.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is hard. But as an engineer you are required to take it and it might be one of the hardest classes you will take as a student besides Engineering Physics 2. But don't let that discourage you. Study hard, go to class, and do the homework and you'll be fine.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot as far as solving problems go. This class helped me figure out how to study more than it did anything else really though.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Work hard and do your best. It will be hard and you might want to quit but don't. Because once you're done with engineering physics, it is such a good feeling.

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Would definitely recommend; Dr. Law could cover more material in a lecture than any other professor I've had, yet he still managed to keep everything understandable. Early parts of the course were more or less high school physics, but it ramped up significantly as the semester went on, which is when I came to appreciate Dr. Law's teaching style; quite fast and frenetic, with a lot of board writing and a demo almost every class to ensure that the material really did hit home.

    Course highlights:

    In-class demonstrations, including a famous experiment featuring a giant pendulum that proved the earth rotates, were particularly interesting to watch. Weekly labs investigated particular material more thoroughly and involved working in groups, making them a more involving collaborative learning activity. The material in question was classical physics, approached from three different viewpoints: Newton's second law (i.e. force & acceleration), the energy method, and impulse-momentum calculations. For me, the energy method was the most interesting, but Newton's second law and impulse-momentum calculations have featured more heavily in higher engineering courses since then.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be active in the labs; hands-on work with the material helped me a lot to understand how exactly the equations from lecture described what was going on, cementing the labs as the best place to make the connections. Discussing it with others or the lab instructors tends to make things a lot clearer, too; I still consider doing so the reason that I remembered the material for classes two semesters later, and can still recall it now.
