This course was what convinced me to major in physics. Professor Grahams enthusiasm is unmatched by any prof. I've had at Middlebury so far. I would love to take more classes with him in the future. Keep in mind that this course assigns a TON of homework. Beware.

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.

Concepts are a bit difficult to grasp if you lack physics experiences, I took AP physics so was definitely alright. He grading of homework/exams is a bit nit picky but good to help you establish good habits. I really enjoyed lab with Prof. Findlay though.

The professor was very intelligent but not super helpful in office hours in terms of rephrasing or walking through problems. He didn’t often respect my drc accommodations which made it quite difficult for me to well in the course.
