    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Water balloon launches, egg drops, bowling ball projectile are all part of AP Physics 1. With several fun activities, it makes the rough times of calculating the displacement or velocity all worth it. Students can guarantee countless hours of studying, tutoring, and doing homework all year long. Luckily with such dedicated and willing teachers, physics has become not only a class of discipline and patience, but a class of unity, support, and laughter.

    Course highlights:

    Some may fear getting a bad grade in physics, but it is clear that the benefits of critical thinking, standardized test preparation, and perseverance far outweighs the possible negatives. I honestly have enjoyed working with others and solving long, rigorous, and difficult questions together. The satisfaction of doing well on a homework problem has been a daily highlight of the last year because of the hard work I put into the class.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise any student thinking of taking this course to just try it out. The key to unlock the world of physics is focused work every day. Class discussions and individual note-taking carry their weight in gold. Teachers also want you to succeed, so if a student dedicates themselves to a year of rigor and tutoring when neccessary, the result will be a class they enjoy going to every day.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is both challenging and super rewarding with a teacher that truly creates a dynamic and fun filled learning environment.

    Course highlights:

    I learned much more than I ever learned in my honors physics course and have consequently gained a firm foundation for engineering.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take it, the course is truly worth it!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because even though it is hard we learn a lot of information and we do a lot of experiments. This class not only teaches us physics but with the increased speed and difficulty level it helps prepare students for college courses that they may take later in life.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course so far was the information that is taught and how it can be easily applied to everyday life. Learning about the forces that are at work and why things move a certain way is extremely interesting and allows for students to pursue multiple different career or major choices.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Some of advice I would give to students about this class is to study for at least 30 minutes each day. Also, drawing pictures for the problems is very helpful when it comes to answering what direction it will move. Finally, I would tell an incoming student that before they answer a problem that seems obvious make sure they do the work to prove the answer.
