Prof Watson is very enthusiastic about the material but her lectures are too fast paced. She solves complex math equations without explanation assuming that the students know how to do it. The exams are very hard since they cover ideas not seen in class. Even though the material was very interesting, it was hard to engage given the fast-paced and complex nature of the course.

The course is super interesting. It is a good intro leap in modern physics. Since the class is only really taken by majors it tends to be small which is super nice because everyone can work through problems together. Watson is really nice and a good teacher but a little tough on the grading

This course is pretty brutal. Lots of lab work and papers to write. Prof. Watson is very tough on grading and expects lab notebooks and papers to be perfect. Be prepared to get very familiar with latex.
