    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Overall it was a good class. I got easily frustrated with the lengthy homework assignments but if you did those you would not need to do anything other than that to get an "A" on the test.

    Course highlights:

    Mr. Pillsbury does everything he can to help you to learn the material which was really nice. I learned a lot of basic physics concepts, pretty much everything you need to know to pass the AP exam.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you have your calculator every day; show up to class, and do your homework. This is all you need to do to succeed.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course. It made the ordinary interesting as we learned how every day concepts such as electricity really work. I didn't think I would enjoy the course much, but as time went on I found myself extremely interested. Mr. Pillsbury is a great teacher with many years of experience. He always gives many examples to study from and always makes extra time after school to help students. If you have a question you can be sure he will sit down with you to find the answer and help you understand it. The material was challenging but certainly not impossible.

    Course highlights:

    The experiments/demonstrations done were some of the best parts of the class. At one point, we turned off all the lights in the classroom so we could be shown how a laser could be directed, using powder to make it visible. It was educational and fun light show to enjoy. Mr. Pillsbury himself was also one of the best things about the class. It is a privilege in and of itself to be taught by him. We learned everything from how basic mass and gravity works, to how to measure the velocity of objects in space, to the mechanics of electricity and magnets. It is a very broad course, covering many topics in the time allowed.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    This class is challenging. You will need to put time and effort into it. That being said, you learn a lot over the course of the year and it's definitely worth it. You need to make sure to do the homework and take advantage of the time provided after school to come in and ask for help. Be sure you fully understand the material before tests. Also, this is a very math-heavy course. Be sure you know that when thinking about applying. There are also many formulas you need to memorize so keeping a list of them throughout the year can be very useful later on. Also, be sure you're ready to build because the final project is a bit of a doozy.
