    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Although Physics was a subject that I might have enjoyed learning, I wasn't given that opportunity because the instruction provided was woefully inadequate for a variety of reasons. This resulted in an almost complete lack of "teaching" in the traditional sense, and made it very difficult to excel, especially once we got to the AP exam in the Spring.

    Course highlights:

    Frankly, the most I can take away from this experience is that I learned how to better work with others. My friends and I had to learn to work together in order to keep up with the pace of the curriculum, and we essentially taught ourselves the basics of Physics without the aid of a professor.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in AP Physics I with a normal teacher, I would imagine that the best tip would be to make sure to ask that teacher questions if you are confused about any of the difficult concepts. However, if you happen to take AP Physics I with Mrs. Grimsley, my best advice would be to rely on reputable internet resources to aid in supplementing the "teaching" provided, and to ask questions not of the teacher, but of friends and family who have a background in Physics.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you are looking to challenge yourself or are thinking of studying a career that needs upper level in Math, take this course.

    Course highlights:

    Learning how the world works. It helped have more insight for math and prepared me to my next step in college. I will be able to take a placement test and not have to take beginner's math.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to be challenged and work with team groups.
