Grade: A

Despite getting an A in this class, I feel very unprepared for future classes involving this subject matter. Being an electrical engineering major, I really needed to understand the material. However, Naoz mostly did derivations of physics theory which left me, along with the majority of the class, extremely confused. They were completely unnecessary and did little to help teach us. Because of all the time spent on derivations, she fell behind the other classes in terms of material covered. We only covered SHM, electric field, electric force, electric potential, and capacitance. The other classes covered that as well as resistors and thermodynamics to name a few. These are things we need to know. The tests were pretty easy though. They were basically what the problem sets she posted were. Honestly, you could probably do well by just reading the book and doing the homework. Going to lecture will not help.

The Professor is not that bad as the previous reviews said. She really cares about students. I took physics 1B with her. Even though she usually spend a lot of time on proving the theorem and those proof are, for most of time, really hard to follow and to understand, her class is organized and straightforward. Honestly, she is not an excellent lecturer, but comparing to other professors I think she is still above average. I would really like to take her class for physics 1C.
