    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Although Mr. Nigro no longer is a teacher at Rocky, I believe that this class is very important to take throughout your high school career. By learning more about science, you are able to understand things about the world around you more clearly. Plus, we are able to get CU credits for it so it will not be necessary to take this course in college.

    Course highlights:

    You learn a lot about each periodic table element, mols, and mixtures. You do labs constantly that help you to better understand the class content and have a feel for what labs are like.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to do homework almost every night. I know some people had a lot of issues retaining the material so take notes and always work on what you learned that night, especially if you do not completely understand it! The class moves fast, there is a lot of material to learn. There is also a lot of math involved with this course, so be prepared for that!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course, because it taught me the basics of chemistry. I took these skills learned in chemistry, and took it to the next level by taking college level chem. It was a very tough class, but without the regular chemisty taken prior to the college chemistry, there would a very slim possibility that I would have passed the class.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was the students and teacher. The teacher was so amazing, willing to connect with the student on any problem they had with his class, and willing to put endless amounts of time into making sure his students were understanding the material properly. The students were great. We were able to all bond a lot, because this class took an extensive amount of time, which allowed us all to work together in ways that created us closer.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Advice I would give to a student considering taking this course, is to pay attention and take notes. This advice is very general and can be told for any course, but if you do not take notes, it will be very hard to pass the class. There are so many problems that require notes from class, but if a student does not pay attention, then the notes are useless when they get home to do the problem. So, pay attention and take thorough notes!
