By intro physics I mean calculus based Physics I (Newtonian physics). I'm a freshman planning on majoring in CS and this is my first semester in college. I'm doing well in all my other courses, all A's (calc, intro to CS, others)... but physics, man. I'm not kidding when I say, with a 5 course course load, I spend probably 50% of my study time studying for physics, and I STILL only pull off an average of 10/15 on tests (66%). The average for the class is usually 8/15 (so failing) but for me this grade is unacceptable. I'm used to getting good grades in high school, but in college is the average being failure a relatively common occurrence in the hard sciences and engineering courses? I have to spend all my time studying for a course not even related to my major (for the most part anyway). Don't get me wrong, I enjoy physics problem solving and appreciate the creativity involved in coming up with solutions to some of the problems, but man! Did anyone else feel the same about their first physics course? Be honest even if it must be blunt! (Also should mention I did not take physics in high school).
