    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is difficult, but the professor is great and does her best to thoroughly explain, walk through examples, and draw clear drawings. This is quite a bit of homework, but this is the advanced honors section, so that it to be seen. The professor is very friendly and will always take time to sit down with you and run through problems/examples. The exams are difficult, but it you do put in the time, it will pay off.

    Course highlights:

    The professor showed a multitude of demos which were always fun and engaging. Professor also gives countless resources and "science goodies" for the students. You learn the introductory physics concepts to a greater degree, such as Newton's Laws, kinematics, energy, and many more interesting concepts. Favorite demo was a demo of momentum. Professor sat on a skateboard with a fire extinguisher, and demonstrated how momentum works. (Used fire extinguisher as a propellant.)

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the book, complete all homework to the best of your ability, and study. Make sure you can do many different problems from the textbook. Study. All exam problems are taken from the textbook, and some are taken from homework as well. Study. Seek help if you need it- do not wait. Did I mention you need to study?

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Overall Analytical Physics I isn't going to be the most fun class but having it with a first year teacher made it more difficult. The problem with this was that almost all of the learning was done outside the class. If you can handle that then sure take the class, if not, then don't.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights for me were actually the labs outside of the class that's where I was able to take what we were learning about in and out of the class into something that is more visual. Throughout the year all of the chapters came back together to give us Newtons first 3 laws, so overall i would say that's what we learned.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Try and make it to his office hours it will help you a lot when you aren't understanding what he is talking about. Make sure to always be paying attention because you never know what you'll miss in 5 seconds in a physics class.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class was simultaneously the most challenging and most rewarding class I have ever taken. It was the most work I had ever put into a class, but I cannot express how much I was able to learn about both physics and how to study.

    Course highlights:

    This course focuses almost entirely on motion. I learned more than I really wanted to about things like projectile motion.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you don't come to class, you won't pass. The weekly homework assignments are really the center point of the class, you get two drops for the semester, but I would recommend trying not to use either.
