    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would not recommend this class unless you absolutely have to take it but Yelton and Matcheva are the best professors for this class. Their explanations are very simple. The key to this class is practicing the homework. Many students choose to look up the answers in the solution manual but actually having to struggle and think about a question is one of the best ways for it to stick in your head.

    Course highlights:

    From this course, I gained a different way of approaching problems. They encourage you to solve for variables before inputting values and even though it was difficult to adjust to that at first, I have a better understanding of physics.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Really REALLY do the homeworks, sit at the front and force yourself to pay attention. The teachers are pretty good at teaching and you have a little less to learn on your own if you pay attention to the lectures.

    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Acosta was amazing! Rinzler was not. If you have the choice, take it with Acosta only, however avoid Rinzler if you can.

    Course highlights:

    Professor Acosta was the highlight. He provided online lectures, as well as great in-class lectures for half of the class. The demos were all interesting.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise avoiding Rinzler, but if you can't, make sure you watch the online lectures and read the book.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Rinzler was the WORST teacher I've had at UF, and Acosta was one of the best. If you take this class, be prepared to have to watch the online lectures because you probably won't get anything out of Rinzler's classes. Acosta's classes are the opposite, he knows what he is talking about.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course were the classes Acosta taught. He showed the class many interesting relevant demonstrations and made the class somewhat enjoyable.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Since you'll probably have to take this class in a lot of engineering majors, I would advise taking it when Acosta is teaching, and trying to avoid Rinzler.
