    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Recommend. This class definitely tests you as a student. Must study, and read ahead on your own. Prof Washburn doesnt speak the clearest so you need to know in general what material hes going over in class that day. Im taking the Tuesday and thrusday night class that goes from 5:30 to 8:30. Its great for people who work during the day but you must stay dedicated.

    Course highlights:

    Definatly the labs. Labs are always the fun part when it comes to physics; learning how to predict where a ball would land after rolling off a table, calculating forces on an object, and theres more to come since its only half way through the course.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always read ahead and take notes on the chapter before class. Stay caught up on your home work and always ask questions. Everything you learn ties together in some way so make sure your on top of the things from the get go.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    She is a great teacher. she is helpful and accommodating. The tests are hard but she goes over examples in class. The topics are a bit complex and take time to absorb. You have to practice working problems to really get the hang of it.

    Course highlights:

    She made physics manageable and interesting. She frequently used real world examples and made it a point to explain things in various ways to help all students understand the content. I learned about different types of motion and forces and how we interact with the world around us.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    study as much as you need to, set aside the time, ask for help. Going to the tutor center helps as well as meeting for office hours to get clarification on things. Studying everyday also helps tremendously, because this keeps the more complicated concepts fresh in your mind so that you are not always starting at zero.
