    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This was sort of a tough course for me and I didn't love it at the time, but learning a little about physics has helped me understand a lot about the world and how it works. It even helped me with understanding how the trumpet works.

    Course highlights:

    I learned several things about gravity, inertia, airflow and many other things that we see and use in daily life. This material can help a lot with everyday desicion making particularly with around the house projects.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't get behind. Just stay on top and ahead of everything. It makes things a lot easier. If you get behind, it's hard to get caught up.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I loved this class because it got me into what I am considering in perusing in my career, physics. In this class, I built rockets and parachutes. I got to experiment and see designs worked best and why. I had a lot of fun in that class and learned things that I will never forget, like a octagonal shape for a parachute is better than a circle because it lets the air out more evenly.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were definitely building rockets and parachutes. I built lots of different rockets and got to test and see which designs were better and which didn't work and perfect the perfect rocket that went up the highest and had the best parachute deploy to have the safest landing. I learned two things in this class; one, that a good rocket has a very narrow nose and three fins; two, that I love building things and it is something I am considering on doing in my career.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just take it easy and have fun. This is a relaxed class to help you learn and discover. I learned quite a bit about rockets and physics but also about myself. It's not hard so if you decide it's not for you, then it won't be hard to finish. But if you end up loving it, then you can go all the way and pour your soul into your rockets and parachutes.
