    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend because Professor Reinhold really knows how to teach step by step. At first, his method seemed a bit unorthodox but after a few weeks, you start to see why he does what he does and you'll never think twice about it.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights were definitely learning physics from the bottom up. Knowing the little things to understand the bigger things was extremely important and Reinhold knows how to accomplish that.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Take your time to study the material! Do all the homework, trust me it helps! Remember, you're not the only one in the class, ask other students for help and advice. They're all going through the same thing you are. If you think you got an answer right, double check it and then triple check it. Physics can be a tricky one at times.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    After having taken physics I without calculus before, I thought I would have been able to do fairly well in the class the second time around. Her lectures were brief but did not hit many points we were tested on. This class was mostly online with an in-person exam component and an in-person final exam study session with the professor's presence. During the final exam study session, she questioned all of us WHY we are crazy enough to take Physics I during a summer session online; she then proceeded to say how her own son failed Physics. The tests were challenging and there was a LOT of graded homework.

    Course highlights:

    I liked how the lectures were online and recorded so that you can rewatch them.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would say if you really needed to take this class in this manner at this time of year, which was in my case, it's doable. I was able to pass with a B+ but not without much studying and struggle. She doesn't do much in curving.
