    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend the course because its a science that not so many people understand. Its a profound way of looking at the universe and how it is. The class offers insight to not only what we thought we knew, but what we also still dont know.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were how our professor taught us. He used relate-able and comedic ways of educating our class. He taught us simple, but effective ways into memorizing and understanding the material that is presented to us.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    use common sense when applying to these questions

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I personally would recommend this class because it is not only interesting, but can actually be really fun. It's interesting to learn about the ways that energy and matter work together, and why certain things work the way they do. There are also a lot of fun demonstrations that the teachers do to explain the different laws of physics, which I thought made the class more exciting and engaging for me. Not only that, but the teachers for the class are really cool and are constantly doing different activities to keep students engaged and initiated in learning. Of course it may be a little challenging at times, but it is definitely worth it!

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were all the demonstrations that the teacher showed. Most of the time the teacher would need a volunteer for his demonstration, and most of the time I was that volunteer! It was fun and pretty cool to see firsthand the laws of physics in action, and learning about how they apply to pretty much everything in our everyday lives. Through these demonstrations, I not only gained an understanding of the science behind physics, but a deeper understanding of the world as well.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    It's physics, so there will be a lot of math involved. There are many formulas and equations that are used in physics, but luckily the reference tables gives you all of them. In all honesty, my best advice would be to study the material if you want to pass. Not necessarily the equations, but study the context of different types of problems in order to understand what to do and how to do it. It's always best to draw a diagram of the problem first so that you can label and see what is being described in the problem, and once you do that you'll soon realize how easy it is to solve those problems.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is a course that introduces the concepts of science very well. It is very organized and easy to follow, and the teacher is very passionate about showing modern physics discoveries and other things that keep you engaged!

    Course highlights:

    A particular lesson that sticks in my mind was when we learned about how rainbows are formed. The teacher was eager to show us, and he explained it very well. Many simple processes in our lives were related to physics concepts which were interesting to understand and process.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention in class and make sure to do all of the homework, it is very helpful in applying what you learned in class.
