    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Unless you like physics or are interested it is typically not an easily taught class, and unlike other science classes memorizing usually doesn’t get you anywhere.

    Course highlights:

    I’ve learned how to fully apply myself and I learned how to visualize problems more often rather than just look at the numbers.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Use your resources that are given to you, go to PASS sessions, Help center, and office hours also YouTube has good crash course videos.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I really did not have a choice to choose this class, nor the instructor. I personally do not like having to work with groups in class. I also did not like the way the professor taught the class, she only taught one way to solve a problem, and got confused if you showed her a different method.

    Course highlights:

    The labs we're pretty interesting. The instructors are also pretty cool and you could ask for help on understanding the material.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you struggle with math, then you will struggle in this class. It is best to keep practicing a problem until you get it. If one way is too hard, try a different way until you find a way you feel comfortable with.

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class changed my life! It made me decide to add on a physics degree. Dr. Rodrigue it a great professor but she does expect you to put in A LOT of work outside of class.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that behind every physical action, is a really cool physics principle. It also provided me with a new problem-solving ability, no other course besides physics can provide.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to put a lot of effort in outside of class. Make sure you complete the quick quizzes in the textbook and work lots of examples. If you struggled with a certain type of homework problem, make sure you find that question in the book and work problems near it which will be similar. This isn't a subject where you can just memorize formulas, you need to understand what is going on in each problem to be successful.
