    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The teacher is available to help you out as long as you reach out. In this, the teacher is helping you be successful so long as you put in the effort and try your best. It is indeed a difficult course and not for the faint of heart, but it is worth it if you want a challenge and want to push yourself to do better.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course, although also mingled with stress, were the group projects because these were hands on projects that utilized the creative part of your brain too. These projects forced teams to work together because you otherwise wouldn't get through them.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    For those taking the class (the honors course I took was the original test course before they created the AP Physics 1), I would most definitely recommend being willing to ask for what you need and not being afraid to ask for help; the teacher is willing to help as long as you initiate the need and the willingness to learn.

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because the teacher actively engages students in the classroom and makes topics like kinetic energy and angular momentum fun to learn!

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were the various projects in the classroom that enhanced the class's understanding of concepts. The Pasta Bridge allowed students to explore the forces and tension while the gravity cart helped students learn moment of inertia and rotational energy. I learned several concepts such as these and much more like projectile motion and electricity which will definitely be useful when taking college physics courses.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The most important advice is to not procrastinate and do all the homework when assigned. He also puts optional study guides and free response questions and doing those will significantly increase your understanding and prepare you for the final.
