    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The material is challenging without being overwhelming. The homework may seem excessive, but it helps when you take the final test. The teacher finds what is best for the group of students to suit their learning needs.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite part of the course was the daily lectures. The teachers is very... special when it comes to talking to the students. The teacher can get sidetracked which can be a good or bad thing depending if you want homework for that day. The teacher is very flexible with the assignments he hands out.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is important to finish your homework whether or not the assignment is on completion. Ask for help if you have questions. I took it in high school with a high school teacher I was familiar with, so experiences will vary.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I took this class in high school with a high school teacher. The course was technically spread out throughout the whole school year. The teacher taught well and the homework was challenging enough for the students to gain from it. At times I wanted to drop the course completely because it did not effect my high school GPA, but my mom convinced me to continue because I would get five college science credits from completing. It is very important to do the homework, even if the teacher does not check it daily. I enjoyed this course more than I thought I would because Physics puts visuals to math. The labs that the class did could be a bit redundant, but a few were beneficial.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed my teacher's lectures because he had the right number of jokes and sass to go with his lectures. He would use visuals and analogies students of my age could relate to, whether it was picking fun at his fellow science teacher or bringing pop culture into the quiz questions.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you do not enjoy math and science combined, this is definitely not the course for you. If you are a student with high grades that likes challenge this would be a good course for you. Always finish your homework and never procrastinate.
