Spring 2022 - This class is basically the equivalent of AP Physics 1 in high school. If you did the class, and understood how the questions were asked on the AP test, you might be ok for the class. The midterms and final are 20 multiple choice questions. Getting 1 question wrong basically screws your grade over (minus 5 percent). However, there is some partial credit if you show work. I stopped going for lectures after week 2 because I had problems understanding Freiman in class, and I felt better off just studying the material on my own. This class is basically a self-study class. The textbook is on a website called Kudu which is not structured well. The Kudu textbook barely brushes the concepts and it does not give proper examples to help with the tests. The homework problems were assigned from Kudu and were either super easy or super hard. Kudu also did not give explanations for most of the homework problems so good luck understanding the question if you got it wrong. There are weekly discussion worksheets. The worksheets are not bad, but they are graded harshly. Additionally, the worksheets are usually weeks behind what is actually being taught in class. So when the exams come up, its hard to find material to review. The grading of the class is super vague. There are two midterms, a final, the discussion worksheets, homework problems, discussion attendance, and some extra credit labs. The homework and the extra credit labs are graded on completion. In all honesty, I am super confused on how I got an A. I had no idea what my grade in the class would be throughout the quarter since I had no idea about how to calculate my grade, and I was unsure if the Kudu homework assignments were even submitted properly. I eventually decided to not stress about it and simply leave it upto God. This class has definitely improved my connection with the divine and I have definitely become a faithful person since coming into this class. I now feel that religion triumphs science in all ways and I have decided to renounce my sinful past to deepen my ties with God. My revelation about the divine should demonstrate how annoying this class is for me to have to resolve to God to get rid of my anxiety. Overall I think its best that you choose a different professor. Freiman is good only if you really understand the concepts and you are fine with vagueness. The lack of practice material, the vagueness about grading, and the inconsistencies in the exams made the class harder than it should have been from the beginning.
