Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
The course is challenging and is a course that effectively engages the students in class discussions and also prepares the students for college courses. The instructor, Wunderlich, makes the class enjoyable and expects only the best from her honor students. The class will not only effectively prepare the student for college like courses, but also teaches the student their own strength and weaknesses in organization. The class is highly recommended for those who wish for a more challenging class.
Course highlights:
The class progresses quickly and thoroughly about each subject, teaching the student various ways to solve for a problem and to connect it to real world problems so that the student can retain the information in a quick and yet organized fashion. The class elaborates on how to find the number of protons, electrons, and neutron by using the atomic mass of the atom. Then with this knowledge the student should be able to comprehend the charge of the atom by looking at the periodic table. The lessons are not complex, but rather, require the student to connect to previous lessons already learned and to answer the questions they have, by themselves. With this in mind, Ms. Wunderlich claims that many teachers tell the answer to the students, while she gives the students the required information to actually learn the concepts rather than just memorize the steps.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours

By entering the honors course of this chemistry class, the student is expected to have good study skills, good note taking skills, and to have good organizational skills.
