    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Callan is a young, energetic, and passionate professor who is actively devoted to seeing her students understand and succeed.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were Callan's fun, interactive demonstrations. I learned how to collaborate with fellow students and openly discuss problem solving methods.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't work until you succeed. Work until you cannot fail. It is not important to get homework questions right once for the credit; in order to succeed in this course, pour over the material and problems, constantly finding and filling cracks in your understanding of topics

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The teacher is a blast! He is super funny and is a professional in his field who understands the material very well.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that there is always more than one way to approach a problem in physics, so try different points of view!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay on top of your homework! Or it might build up and crush you.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It's a hard class, but the problem solving skills you gain are important in every class afterwards. Callan is also very good at explaining things in lecture, she isn't afraid to get silly sometimes, and she's even better in office hours.

    Course highlights:

    This course goes through mechanics, which is how physical forces act on objects. We did some experiments in studio, like how oscillating spring forces change, rolling a ball down an incline, and such. At the end we briefly talked about waves, which sets up Physics 2.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    As someone who didn't have a very difficult high school physics, the notation was difficult to grasp at first. That initial learning curve is pretty steep, but as long as you work through things step by step, you should be just fine. TA and professor office hours help tremendously. Find a few other people in the course and do the homework together. Tests are just the practice exams and homework with different numbers, so study!
