    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Science is not for everyone of course, and that's where I draw the line on recommendation. But if any of you are like me, you will enjoy not only the aspects the class has to offer, but all of the things you will learn about physics that can be applied to every day life.

    Course highlights:

    Physics is above all about ideas: about how our universe works. It is a study of the underlying principles of our universe. But these ideas are quite precise, and let you predict what will happen when matter and energy move or change. So It is not just a question of things going faster or slower, but of exactly how fast. And so you do make measurements, and you use mathematical equations to see what happened or what will happen. People with a good understanding of physics, even basic physics, have a good idea of how the world around them works. They will not necessarily know every detail, but they will have a good idea of how a car works, and how a plane flies, and how electricity powers a washing machine. If it is nothing else, it is a great introduction to the practical side of life!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do it, do it, do it! It's physics so that name in itself will automatically scare away people, but it is a great course to take while also pushing yourself out of your comfort zones. If you are a science lover, take this course! If you are not a science lover, then step away from what you know and challenge yourself a little bit. You may be surprised at what you learn!
