    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Maynard is an excellent teacher when it comes to the mechanics aspect of physics. This statement does not really carry over to other aspects of physics. He really struggled explaining electricity and magnetism beyond very very basic information. However, the AP Physics C class focuses on mechanics so this is not an issue for this class. If you struggle with math I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THE COURSE. There is a lot of math with quite advanced algebra and some calculus that really ranges in difficulty. If you are not a big math person then it can be very difficult at times. However, if you are a math person (like me) then the class is really quite fascinating as you learn the basis for the complex math you have previously learned and gives purpose to what we learns.

    Course highlights:

    Mr. Maynard is really a pretty relaxed teacher which is really great. He is approachable if you need help and is funny and really cares about his students. Personally, I think the labs we do in this course are pretty cool. A lot of the labs we do in classes up to this one we are given firm guidelines on how to do it but we often are just given a goal and we have to figure out ourselves how to get to it which is really pretty fun, especially when you get to use some of the more advanced technology.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    A background in physics is necessary for this class. The best way to study is to just do your homework regularly. The more practice you get the better and that is best done with the problems Mr. Maynard assigns. Also doing the optional study guides help immensely. Sometimes questions from the study guide/ review guide appear on the test in the exact same form and all the other questions tend to give you a good idea what to study and what will be heavily covered, however the guides are long so start them early. Also Mr. Maynard posts the answers to the review guide online on his website but make sure he does it and it is for the right set of questions because this was often an issue where he just forgot to fix it and it is a lot easier to study when you know the answer you should be getting.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    AP Physics is a course you should consider is you're looking for a challenge. It not only requires memorization skills, but also the ability to grasp a concept and apply it to different situations in the real world.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of my Physics course were the projects we did throughout the year. From launching rockets, to shooting catapults, each project was an example of how using in the real world is a way to help produce the best results possible.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My strategy to study throughout the year was to use notecards. Pay attention, and memorize the formulas while being able to derive them and understand where they come from.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Mr Maynard is really well versed in calculus and can easily break down each subject into manageable segments that are interesting and fun.

    Course highlights:

    Learning the calculus proofs involved with all of the Newtonian physics was interesting and provided a lot of background knowledge that helped in understanding the course.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Never skip the homework or exam review guides, they will be a god send when it comes to your grades.
