    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    While rigorous, this class will hold useful to me in the long-run; chemistry is a very important vital subject especially for those going into a STEM field. Even if aren't considering a major specifically related to chemistry, this class honed my critical-thinking, mathematical, and conceptual skills.

    Course highlights:

    We learned Stoichiometry, Kinetics I and II, Thermodynamics, and Electrochemistry to name the broader topics.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take notes and STUDY!! This class is not a joke. Of all the AP sciences courses available, this is likely the most difficult. While I, myself, have not taken all of the AP sciences, from peer opinions and my experience so far in AP Physics, AP Chemistry will be far from an easy time. Listen to what the teacher has to say! Don't ignore any little detail. If you want the class to be as easy as possible, be sure to listen in class. If you have a question, ASK IT! I cannot emphasize this enough! If you have a question about a confusing concept, ask it or else you'll be completely loss on the homework. Speaking of homework, DO IT! It's hard, it's frustrating, but it's practice! It's literally what you do in class so if you practice at home you'll get better at your chemistry! Try to study with others! If you cannot grasp a concept easily and a classmate does, reach out to them! They might have a concept they're struggling with which you are not. That way, you both get something out of it. Even if you're 100% lost, they should be more than happy to help you. AP Chemistry is a struggle, and the entire class is in it together. Finally, and this is something I painfully regret not doing, go to tutoring! Whether it's before school, during your lunch period, or after school! Go receive tutoring from your chemistry instructor! Usually they'll only have a few students in at a time, especially after the first semester concludes.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because honestly if you are hoping to enter the STEM field in any way you will surely face general chem in your Freshman year of college and this class gives you a taste of it. Also Mr. Haliday is the best teacher that you could ever have for Chem, he can truly explain and teach you everything even if you have absolutely no knowledge of basic Chemistry principles.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a profound knowledge on basic college general Chem and also how to make homemade soap.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do all of your homework no matter what and stick around for tutoring anytime you can.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend if you share a passion for science and mathematics. It is a very challenging course yet you learn so much. You learn about how molecules react , battery works and much more

    Course highlights:

    Solving stoichiometry problems because it includes math. I learned about balancing chemical equations, making an ICE OR BCA Table, finding out the limiting and excess reagent and finally figuring out the actual product.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Patience and motivation. Learn how to manage your time wisely. Study a little bit everyday and don't cram on the last day. If you give it your all then you'll get results. Work with people and make friends because together we are more powerful.
