Comment :
For someone who has little/no physics background (was in 1020 last semester) I can honestly say this is a really great course. Loads of interesting demonstrations and the application of physics is much more easily seen. The calculus element is really easy if you've done Math 1080 and Orbax is a fantastic prof.
