Trying to keep this as short as possible, I'd like to be an engineer, and I'm currently taking an algebra-based physics course. It's not a class I need for my major (of course, I will need calc-based), but I've already passed the drop deadline, so I'll receive a "W" on my transcript. It's been four (going on five) weeks of school, and the workload is extremely overwhelming for a class I don't need. I think the problem with this is largely due to my professor—compared to the workload of the other people in my labs, their professors hardly give any work that goes beyond having a fundamental (mathematical) understanding of each section. Basically, all the other algebra-based physics professors are a world easier on their students when giving work than mine is. Right now, I also have a variety of computer classes (largely programming) and a math class in my schedule. Those are classes I actually do need to take, and this physics class is hindering me from receiving the A grades I should be able to get. Now, don't get me wrong, I find that I REALLY love the material in this physics course—I truly think it's all incredibly intriguing! But at the rate my professor is handing out work, I don't think I can keep up with all my classes the way I'd like to. Opinions?
