    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it's applications spread beyond the world of science. Excitingly, you will learn things in this course that you can see in common objects and occurrences. For example, I knew why it took so long for my hot tea to cool. I knew why bugs could walk on water. I knew why water beaded up on a waxed car hood. Even though I'd never questioned these things before, it was amazing to learn the chemistry behind the phenomena. It also led me to question other everyday occurrences.

    Course highlights:

    This course definitely exercises your math skills, but won't get as complicated as anything like calculus. In addition, some chapters will be more wordy and go over concepts rather than equations. The class offers a good mixture of both kinds of learning and skills.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise a student in this course to take plenty of notes during the teacher's lectures and stay on top of homework. Also, don't be afraid to look for help online, for example in a solution manual. Ask questions right away, as you think of them in class. I'm sure other students would also benefit from your question.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I honestly, did not enjoy this course. I'm not as smart in the science field, it just doesn't click with me. However, I took this class as a sophomore in high school and it was very beneficial. It was hard, but now that I had chemistry out of the way in high school, I didn't need to take it in high school.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was all of the really cool experiments in the class. We got to spill rubbing alcohol on the table and light it on fire (don't try this at home). Another experiment we soaked some metal wire in different solutions and those solutions would change colors. During these experiments I learned that you need to follow instructions. When you don't you may end up smelling a solution that makes you smell garlic all day or dye your fingers purple.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The advice I would give students would be to listen and take lots of notes, ask questions, and take the extra credit when given. Go in before or after school and ask for a little help on topics you don't understand

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    In middle school when you heard chemistry you thought only the super smart kids will be able to take that class and pass it. Chemistry was a good class and was not even hard , thanks to Mrs.Ruffin .

    Course highlights:

    Math is put in every subject !

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study ! It will only get easier if you contine to study and practice .
