    | Would recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it has helped me become and open-minded student and at the same time question everything I know and make connections between all the IB courses I am taking. This class involves a lot of discussion, and the more that students are willing to share the more interesting the conversations become.

    Course highlights:

    One of the most important highlights has been learning how math, history, and art are all used as a method of learning knowledge. We have investigated those topics in great detail. and it is very interesting to learn and question everything we know in order to come to our own conclusions. You will learn how to create an opinion which you believe in, while involving some ideas from your classmates. After taking this class you will definitely think about knowledge itself, your actions and why people from different places think and behave in certain ways compared to yourself. You will learn to understand each other better instead of judging one another.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would tell the students to become involved in as many discussions as possible because that will make the lessons learned in the class very rewarding. I would also emphasize to other students that keeping up with the papers that you might have to write is very important. In order to get them done while still having a firm opinion over a topic, one should start writing after having the conversations recent in one's mind.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Theory of Knowledge is a course based on philosophy. The course causes students to think in ways they never have and to question numerous aspects of the way people "know". The course helps students expand their worldview, while also helping students understand the reasoning behind the actions people take, as well as the choices they make.

    Course highlights:

    There is constant discussion in the class. It is always interesting to hear what other students have to say. Students often find themselves deep into conversation.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay open minded. There are times where the class may frustrate or confuse you. There will be times where you find a student with an idea the is completely different than yours, be sure to try and consider their point of view.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is a good class if you are talkative. Also it really makes you think outside the box. It isn't like normal classes like math, or science. You really go into depth about many things. It is an interesting class so I do recommend it.

    Course highlights:

    I learned many things about knowledge, perspective, perception etc. But a very interesting thing I learned was how our perception and mind work together. I also learned how to determine whether a certain art piece is good or bad.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be very involved in class. Try to raise your hand in class everyday because you are graded a lot on participation. Also make sure you pay attention in class because your teacher would make you write many essays.
