This class was tough.
Course Overview:
The professor is definitely what made this course possible. The textbook is the least helpful tool since it is too confusing and makes the material seem more complex than it actually is. Going to class is a must since the professor disarms the material's complexity and makes is extremely easy to understand and tackle the mathematical problems of the course. With that said, the professor is a goofball but within the limits and covers the material efficiently.
Course highlights:
The professor made it fun to go to class and knowing that he was the main source of understanding of the material. He cuts out all the fluff and a lot of the mathematical complexities that are used to derive laws and standard equations for analysis.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
GO TO EACH CLASS. I made the mistakes of missing a couple of the classes and I definitely paid for it on the second exam. Never made the mistake of missing class again. There are no surprises when it comes to the exams. He tells you exactly what to expect and covers the material and does review before all exams and quizzes. Go to the office hours when you need the help/advice and he's friendly and not at all intimidating which is super helpful when it comes to clarification questions. Definitely go over some physics 2 (electromagnetism) material, specifically the basic circuit analysis part with Ohm's Law, Kirchhoff's Voltage and Current laws, and V=IR, if necessary as these are the biggest concepts used in the ENTIRE course.
Pretty easy, overall.
Course Overview:
All in all, I thought he was alright.
Course highlights:
I love him. He's the whole reaosn I became an anthropology major.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
The entire class was fascinating.
