    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you are okay to take. Make sure you do the homework and if you understand the homework you should be fine. She gives you a class hand out for notes and practice questions you just have to fill out. For the tests she will post a series of a multiple choice questions and some of them are usually on the test. Make sure you know the formulas!

    Course highlights:

    We went through the whole textbook required for the class. Everything from measurements, to acceleration & velocity to elastic and inelastic to force and motion, kinetic and potential energy, rotation, center of mass and linear momentum, Motion in multiple dimensions, rolling, torque, angular momentum, equilibrium and elasticity, and gravitation. Make sure you know the formulas.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you memorize the formulas and do the homework. If you can't understand accents well then you may not want to take this class. If your good at math you should do fine. If you struggle a little it may take a little longer.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I mean, it's a general physics course. It's pretty straight forward and easy.

    Course highlights:

    I have already taken physics in high school, so I pretty much know all the course material. That being said, the course is very easy for me. Luckily, even if you haven't taken the course before and are somehow struggling, Deveroux gives out a lot of extra credit. You can literally bomb all the tests but ace all the extra credit assignments and still pull a high B. You literally cannot fail his class.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the extra credit and study vocab over all else. The quizzes don't even have real problems on them. They ask general questions like what is the unit of measurement for mass? So it's pretty easy.
