Physics, abridged

Bad Dad and I are taking Coursera's Introduction to Astronomy class. There is something comic about going through all of physics in one week of review. This week's docket covers classical mechanics in a bit over an hour.  Then we spend an hour covering electromagnetism and then finish up with quantum mechanics in half an hour.  It's a good thing I served as a teaching assistant for quantum mechanics for three semesters, or else I might be lost.
Next week, we get to do astronomy, the stuff that's new to me.  I hope I can keep up.
This reminds me of the Reduced Shakespeare's complete works of William Shakespeare.
