A Few Big Assignments
Math-heavy
Great Intro to the Subject
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
i would recommend it because it helped with problems i was confused with
Course highlights:
i learned many different formulas and different ways to use them and the easier and harder versions of them
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
study hard and focus on everything you are being taught and write notes
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Physics is a concrete science, making it ideal for rational thinkers. I particularly enjoyed the course as it truly expanded my knowledge of the way the universe operates, putting life in terms of numbers and equations that are nothing but logical. Physics put my fear of flying to bed. There is so very little that we actually know about this world and what makes it turn, but physics provides a small window into this vastness through which one can see gravity and forces as quantifiable objects, where light and energy interact and all laws are unbreakable. This course gave me direction (and magnitude), as I will be working towards a degree in physics beginning next fall.
Course highlights:
I was particularly attentive when it came to circuits (amps, resistance, parallels and series, etc.). Other notable subjects were velocity, potential and kinetic energy, and of course, gravity. Throughout the course I learned the equations and laws that went along with each topic, and worked through equations appropriate to each in order to further this knowledge. As we reached the end of each topic and began going over a different one, dots connected and we discovered that every aspect of physics is interrelated to the others. Equations relating to force can be used to find the distance between objects, and the gravitational constant is a factor in countless problems. This course helped me to understand that the world is a single working organism made up of trillions of separate moving parts, and physics is at the very foundation of this endlessly complex creature.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
My first tip would be to pay attention. I made the mistake of slacking off quite a bit in the first month and as a result was woefully unprepared as we began going over the more complicated material. If you don't understand something, ask questions; that's what teachers, and even your peers, are for. Watch supplemental videos, and practice relevant equations. You won't learn anything if you don't do the homework. At the same time, make sure you let yourself enjoy the class. Physics makes sense as long as you pay attention, and once you get it, it becomes a whole lot more fun.
