    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class, because it is very informational on what you would find in a crime scene. If you are one of those people who wants to become a Forensic Scientist or CSI Investigator, then this class is a great class to take. This class goes through many different types of evidence that could be found, the techniques on how they are obtained, possible mathematical equations that can help determine things like the height of where the blood drop came from, or how much refraction the light is on the glass. This class also gives you the opportunity to do labs were you can find and gather the evidence yourself.

    Course highlights:

    You get to learn about the many different types of evidence, such as; fingerprints, DNA, hair, fibers, glass, shoe prints, bite marks, tools, etc. I love how much detail is put into learning everything about Forensics. My most favorite part is the Fingerprint, DNA, and Blood Unit. This unit was a lot of fun to learn, and the labs we did were both fun, and very informational. I have learned so much on how fingerprints differ, and how they find those difference. I also love how they can gather a lot of information from just a blood drop. You can determine what force was use, where the injury waas possible located on the victim, the angle it came from, and the movement of the blood splatter and the person. One unit can give you so much detail.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    In this class, you learn a lot of detailed information. You are also given the opportunity to gather evidence in labs. Take advantage of that. You can learn so much in that class, if you at least put the time and effort in the class. Also you do have presentations to do. Make the presentations both informative and eye appealing. You are also given a power point with the notes on them, go through them a lot, they have important information for you to have.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because it will look very good on your transcript for college.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about nuclear and quantum.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Ask lots of questions if you do not understand, also stay for tutoring. Make sure you know all materials well.

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because it is very interesting whether you would like to go to this field of study or not. You also learn a lot about DNA and the human body helping with future classes.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights are the labs. I learned how to compare and identify different types of evidence.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go over your notes a lot and do not slack off. I would also say to study quite a bit if you are like me and actually have to study to do good on exams.
