    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Physics is a general science course that many people take to get their requirements filled - but it has been one of my favorite classes in my entire high school career. Mr. Lowe is funny and kind to everyone. He makes physics exciting, and it doesn't feel like work. I have learned how to listen and learn better through this class.

    Course highlights:

    In physics, we learn things that apply to everyday life. Things that you do intuitively are brought to light in physics... I have learned things about sound, light, and mechanics that I never would have thought about previously.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise everyone taking this course to take the homework seriously, fill out your flashcards, and put away your phone in class!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    While it may seem like a difficult subject to take up, the teacher explains it extremely well. Not only is this course fun, but it also helps you gain an entire new perspective of the world. It's absolutely amazing because everything in which you may have thought was a given, is explained step by step through physics. Other than staying on course, and following the curriculum, you'll learn about amazing new things- such as the fact that black hole, aren't actually black (they're actually extremely bright due to all the light they suck in to their core).

    Course highlights:

    I remember watching interstellar at the end of the semester- I learned that almost every single thing portrayed in that movie was calculated to be exactly what it would be. (The height of the waves for the planet near the black hole, the time gap between the astronaut and his daughter if he actually was that close to such a high intensity in gravitational pull, etc.) I also remember very clearly when I got my first circuit to work, and the little tiny light bulb turned on. It was such a satisfying, wonderful feeling when it finally glowed after hours of trying it. Learning about lenses and mirrors was extremely intriguing and interesting- here I learned exactly why nearsightedness and farsightedness happens ( the focus of the light rays is shifted from the back of the eye depending on how horizontally or vertically stretched it is- glasses help correct that focus by shifting how the lightrays come into the eye)

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Note cards are super important! Keep them in a safe place where you'll find them easily. Whenever you're taking notes- take notes on the actual homework sheet instead of a notebook. It'll save you the hassle later. Don't EVER be afraid to ask the teacher for help- they may seem intimidating at first, but asking questions is not as bad as suffering a bad grade.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a great course for people who have an interest in science or how how the universe works. A lot of math and a lot of theory but overall I think it's very rewarding and gives people a look at the big picture as well as it's little details.

    Course highlights:

    My personal favorite part of the course was learning about motion. It just gave me a chance to use all of the stuff that I learned in Geometry and Trig. It's definitely not for everybody, but it offers a fair amount of challenge and feels very rewarding for people who like to challenge themselves.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention and take notes. Everything the teacher says in this course is important and will most likely be on a test. Mr. Lowe also gave great advice about college and what to worry about, don't be afraid to speak up or ask questions, nobody is ridiculed and typically many others had the same question as you.
