This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I enjoyed this course but is t is definitely one of the more difficult courses. Physics is the study of matter and energy. It includes the study of mechanics, heat, light, sound, electricity, and magnetism, as well as the structure of atoms. Physics can be applied in a wide range of applications from predicting climate change to designing computer games. Physics is one of the base courses in many of the science and mathematical career choices especially engineering fields.
Course highlights:
Physics is definitely a mathematical science. It is not about memorization but about applying formulas and computing equations. In this science you can write a mathematical formula for the acceleration due to gravity and apply it in a experiment using a vacuum sealed cavity. This science conjoins math and science together and correlates the principal between the two fields. In physics the student will learn about the scientific method and how to formulate a hypothesis. There are a lot of beginning problems on acceleration of objects on a angle and at a certain velocity that you will need to solve.
Hours per week:
12+ hours
Advice for students:
This course is for the math and science course enthusiasts. This would not be a course for the future English or history majors. This course requires a lot of time, speculation , and analytical thinking. Study groups are great if you become stuck on a problem. Study and know all of the theories. Physics requires strong mathematical skills. The best way to conquer a difficult problem is to simplify it as much as possible and make a diagram of the problem.
