    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class provides a great overview of more advanced concepts in a simple easy to understand format. The instructor Stephanie Sevigny is where the class truly shines. She does a great job of holding your attention from the beginning to the end of class. The class is accompanied by a lab class that allows you to apply concepts covered in class. Do not pass up an opportunity to take a class from Stephanie.

    Course highlights:

    The topics in this course range from Newton's laws of motion to basic concepts of quantum physics. My personal favorite topic of the course was the section covering buoyancy. In this section you learn the basic concept of buoyancy and the logic behind what determines the pressure of water at different depths. In the buoyancy lab you practice measuring the buoyant force of several objects.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Students who consider taking the course should attend class and bring your homework with you. Stephanie is great about answering questions in class and going over specific homework questions that can be considered more difficult.
