I go to a State University which mostly focuses on commuters and I guess that less than 5% of the student population is in sciences. Admission is pretty lax. I have noticed the classes more or less suck because everything is brought down to it's most base level. For example in physics I we ignored Calc for the most part even though it was a calc based physics course because it was to hard and some people hadn't taken it yet. In physics II although everyone has taken calc I we still avoid calc because they didn't understand it. Professors give pretty easy tests and yet more than half the class fails. In my Intro to Java class with 50 people to start >10 were left to finish the course. I don't really know what to make of it, this semester I've stopped going to my Physics course, since it is at 8am and I don't really feel like I need to hear the same lecture 3 times in simpler and simpler terms, which is what our physics class devolves to, I have no trouble learning the stuff just using online lectures and the texts. It's not to say that I think I am a genius or anything, I would gather I am pretty average for the sort of person who would take a science or math course in university, but my school just seems to cater to those far below average. I'm not really sure what I am looking for with this posting, but how do I deal with this or put it into context? Did anyone else experience the same thing?
