    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course if you are in love with physics, but if you're like me and don't get along with physics that well I would try to stay away from his course. He teaches the basic topics, but when it comes to tests you have 13 questions and only 50min. Most of the questions take a lot of comprehension and time.

    Course highlights:

    Everything is online so if you're a wiz with a computer go ahead and take a shot at it. He covers most of the basis info and does problems from the book with the class.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Work hard and fast. Pay attention at all times and read ahead and study constantly. It's always a good idea to make a study group for this class, since most people get lost with it as well.

    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.
