    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would most definitely recommend taking this class. I had a great teacher who helped me understand the learning material and was willing to put in extra time for me. If I wasn't getting something right off the bat, she would stay after school to make sure that I fully understood what we were learning in class. I learned everything that I hoped to learn, going into this class. I would definitely want to take it again.

    Course highlights:

    One of my favorite parts of taking this course was the cardboard boats we worked on throughout the semester. They were so much fun to work on and they were a great learning experience. It was also fun because we got to work in groups and then test the boats at the end of the semester. Unfortunately, my group's boat sunk. However, it was okay because I gained a lot of information by failing. We spent the majority of the semester learning about the periodic table and all the elements. To me, it was very fascinating. We also conducted many experiments and did write-up labs for all of them.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    This was one of the toughest classes I've ever taken. I would recommend it to anyone interested in science. However, it's a very time consuming class. It's essential to put in many hours outside of school to study for tests and really familiarize yourself with the information you're learning. The tests are hard and the criteria can be confusing and tiring, but if you study your hardest and begin to understand the information it can be one of the best classes you'll ever take. This class will test your time management and study skills, but also fill your brain with fascinating statistics.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would only recommend this course to students who 1) Have already taken a regular or preferably honors level Physics course 2) Have no extracurricular activities and plenty of time at home to self-teach

    Course highlights:

    This course was packed full of information and moved at such a pace that it was difficult for even the highest caliber students to keep up with, but it seems that in the actual class, there was no learning going on, the whole class had no actual agenda, but a mountainous pile of homework and notes to do on your own time. I feel as if I only retained the most basic information from this course.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    At the beginning of the year, you're given a list of websites that can help you. USE them. I found more use in the online programs I​ was recommended than I did the actual teacher.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course for anyone looking into engineering. This course is base of what you will learn once you move on to college.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were the electrical chapters and Newton's Laws of Physics section. As I move on I see objects and their forces much differently. As for electrical I enjoyed working with batteries to create light.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Prepare for lots and lots of equations. Once you receive your "small" pamphlet of equations that go down to the bottom of the page, you'll want to start memorizing them especially if you are taking the AP test. This is just the beginning of equations, you'll receive more as you move forward.
