    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is a great class and I found it interesting. She explains the concepts well and often does in class demonstrations of these subjects.

    Course highlights:

    This course is ALL about mechanics with some waves and thermodynamics towards the end. My favorite chapters were on rotational motion, fluid mechanics, and gravitation. You will cover everything from projectile motion to the thermal radiation an object gives. Make sure you do not get behind.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    This is a tough course. DO NOT GET BEHIND. If you get behind then you might as well dig your own grave. Study hard and stay on pace with the class. Also, do not move on unless you understand the material. Everything builds on past material. So if you don't truly understand a concept or chapter then put time in to understand it because it'll make your life easier on the later chapters.

    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.

    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.
