    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It is a great, if not, the best course to see if one is ready for college.

    Course highlights:

    The way the teacher teaches. Following the basics is the key to success!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Find a right way for YOU to study. Collaborate with others.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because of the way the information sinks in. Physics is often seen as a hard subject because of its relation to the science field, but when one sees how it relates to daily life, it becomes incredibly interesting. Seeing how the force of gravity is the same on all objects on earth was really interesting to behold. This course also provided a great environment to view how intertwined science is with the observation of natural life.

    Course highlights:

    One highlight of the course was the teacher. He was a great teacher who could easily translate the concepts into terms that would be easier to understand. He was able to make great analogies thanks to his demonstrations. Throughout the course I learned the basic motion of an object, along with this I also learned the basics of electricity. One of the more important things I feel I learned are the forces and how they interact with each other.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would tell students to ask questions if they are unsure about a concept. That would be because since Physics is a science, its theories and concepts are necessary to relate back to when performing calculations. For this reason I would also advise students to focus more on the concepts of physics rather than the calculations. I would advise students to do as many worksheets that deal with manipulating variables with no calculations because that is how one can truly see how well they are understanding the material.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    In this class the teacher does not baby you. He will give you an assignment, and show you the basic physics behind the concept. That is all he does. The rest of the time we are in groups studying together, because in that class you either help each other, or all go down alone. The class takes up a lot of my time and has taught me that I very much need to work hard to understand complex concepts. He also tries to make the experience as college like as possible. Good class to learn about physics and the experience you have ahead of you in college.

    Course highlights:

    We learned about forces, energy, and motion. A constant force over a distance is energy. Forces have direction and are vectors, energy does not and is scalar. Work is change in kinetic energy. And I can calculate the final velocity of about anything with only distance and acceleration.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    This class is a commitment to a major of physics if you are taking the AP route. Anyone can do it. The class doesn't require you be good at math (although that does help) nothing will be more important than effort. AP Physics is a class of 'smart' people and 'stupid' people, your background doesn't matter. Math won't help you. It's just reasoning, a skill you have to practice and comprehend and hone. We all put in a ton of effort. We don't get the same grades, but we all put in effort. All in all, its an amazing window into the world of physics and college. You won't regret taking it.
