    Would for sure recommend taking this class with Prof Gutperle. He's very clearly passionate about the subject and loves teaching, he's always trying to make the class more engaging and fun by doing different demos and stuff in class. The exams are kind of hard but that may just be bc the material is kind of tricky lol. Mastering physics assignments due every week, discussion worksheets due every week.
