    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course makes your brain work! Whether or not physics is a field you're going into, it's incredibly useful to take a challenging course rhat or applicable to real life. Creative and intellectual juices flow, which leads to higher test scores, self respect, and diversity! I would reccomend this course to any junior or senior whi has taken, at least, pre-calculus and is looking for an applicable science course. Physics wirh Mr. Beckner is understandable and enjoyable. His students feel accomplished and supported in and out of the classroom.

    Course highlights:

    This course taught me to never stop trying. No one said this is an easy course; you will find many wrong answers. Although, it is so riveting to be successful in such a challenging course. It taught me that everyone's in the same boat as you and when you work together to solve problems, the out comes arw more successful. One of many highlights of this course was that, finally, a course applied to real life! It's refreshing to learn about rough concepts that you're reminded of in daily life. Now, I see things through new lenses and have a drive to learn more.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always ask questions. No matter how silly it seems. Someone else has the same concern and will appreciate your confidence! Plus, you'll end up knowing more and being more successful. Do the homework! When homework isn't graded traditionally, it's easy to skip out and wait until answers are given in class. Instead, read and digest the chapters, then do your best on the practice problems. I spent at least an hour a night on physics homework. When you really can't finish a problem, take note of it and ask for an explanation on it the next morning. Finally, look for applicable situations. Seeing how physics fits in real life is life or death in this course. Be willing to set it apart from general math and science classes by looking for real life situations in which you can apply it. This sparks curiosity and often leads to enlightening conversations with the teacher. Have fun!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend Beckner's class. As a two-year student of Beckner, I can advocate for his rigorous coursework, but understanding approach to students who require more time to catch up to there work. If you are a student who needs a challenge, this is the perfect class. He appreciates honest hard work and won't repudiate slow learners, so you should persevere.

    Course highlights:

    The moment when Beckner realized the class was starting to become lethargic, that was the when he revealed his mischievousness. Taking a moment to set his frequency device to emit a frequency only us youngsters could hear, utilizing the weakening of the human hearing with age, the class began to question its sanity. Like cats with a laser pointer, we could not track the source of the sound. With a pointless quest to find the source of what seemed like an imaginary sound we eventually resigned to paying attention to class, unable to doze off any longer. As the lecture dulled our ability to process the frequency, we soon ended class and discovered a heavily giggling Beckner.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take in every resource offered to you. Read the book, go to Smartphysics, listen to the lectures, and do it all as the class does so. Lagging behind is not an option, like in a raging river, any moment of weakness will lead to you drowning.
