This class was tough.
I would highly recommend taking this Physics course. Although it is heavy on reading and class participation, the class teaches material applicable to our daily lives. Teachers like Mr. Linnenburger help make the classroom into a joyful atmosphere, even for the students who lack interest in physics. Hands-on group activities allow us to visualize physics as part of our lives, and thus deepen our understanding.
Some of the most memorable moments in AP Physics were projects like balloon-powered cars and paper-parachutes. These activities allowed us to take our knowledge of the units, and apply them to real-life scenarios, helping us understand how essential physics is, and the role it plays in creating a safe world for us.

Advice for students:
I would advise students to stick through this course. Some units may discourage students because they'll seem confusing at first. However, not everything comes easy for every student. Physics is a vital component of the real-world, and through hard work, studying and participation, the students will create an understanding of the unit, and simultaneously appreciate its' value.
