    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The class set up doesn't favor continuous learning. Choppy set up compared to the same course taught by other professors. You take notes on subjects that are over three chapters ahead of the homework you have due that same day. However, the teacher means well and listens to feedback from students, which suggests general improvement following this semester.

    Course highlights:

    The lectures involved a lot of student feedback, which was helpful when you needed to revisit a confusing subject or question. The exams were curved to match the other classes exam's averages. Xian Wu did in class examples and explanations that were helpful for understanding.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take detailed notes of the lectures online. One of the biggest tips is to make sure to write down every single practice and homework problem fully with diagrams and equations. This method helps a lot when trying to get ready for the exams.

    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is a fantastic course. You learn a lot. It is a very hard class but if you put in enough effort, you will be fine. The first part of the course is very much related to high school physics. So it helps a lot.

    Course highlights:

    2D and 3D dynamics, rotational dynamics, Sound and waves, Harmonic motion, work, energy, applied mechanics......etc

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    be ready for some sleepless night. It asks a lot from you!!!

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor doesn't explain much during lecture. Most of learning had to occur out of class

    Course highlights:

    Covers basic mechanics. Linear physics along with rotational physics and fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, and wave harmonics. Lab is an extension of the classroom that meets once per week

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready to put the time in and study when exams come around.
