    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Physics 180 is an excellent class to take to learn beginning material about physics for engineers. Being able to learn and do the material and then seeing it be applied in the real world is one of the coolest things about the class. As a student you always wonder how material that you learn in class applies to the real world and this class is excellent at showing that.

    Course highlights:

    Being able to understand real world physics in different problems and situations is what this class helped learn. As an engineering when working on designs you will have to take physics into consideration and this class is really helpful in doing that. For example, gravity is a force that is always present in our everyday lives and this class helps defines how gravity effects the world. The class also uses a lot of math like calculus so being able to connect math with real world physics made the class very interesting.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The class material builds on each other so understanding and knowing how to do the material before learning new material is very beneficial. Using the out of class resources is very beneficial like the Teacher Assistant and the math center to help with lecture material and homework. Being able to understand and do calculus is required for the class as well so doing good in your math class as well will help with physics since you are doing some of the same material. One thing I did to help with the class was study the material I learned that day until I understood all of it so that when i went to the next lecture I wasn't behind and I could follow and understand.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is a very difficult class to begin with and with this professor it makes it a little more difficult. He teaches this class as if everyone has already taken it before and should completely understand what he is talking about.

    Course highlights:

    Learned the basics about physics and more.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to use the resources given, such as the book, the math center, the tutoring center, and the physics help sessions.
