    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It was a very informative class, the teacher took the time to help each student individually.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about chemistry and enjoyed very much. It was fascinating and very thorough.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't slack off, you have to pay attention in order to understand because you learn in steps. Take lots of notes and ask as many questions as you can.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because it is an exciting class and gets you prepared on what to expect when you get to college. You learn how to write lab reports, how to do labs, and how to peer review and work well with others. You get a lot of feedback from the instructor on how to write a good lab report. This class is also dual credit so that's a plus!

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to write a good lab report and how to cite my sources in the lab reports. I learned how to make better observations when doing a lab.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Some advice I would give students is to take High school chemistry first to have a little background information on what to expect. Always pay attention when given instructions on what to do during a lab. Do a rough draft for you lab report so you can get feedback from the instructor and peers.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to students going into a heavily dominated science field, because it teaches students how to stay organized during a lab and making sure the student understands how to observe and mark things correctly in a lab notebook. This course also helps students understand the benefit of taking detailed notes. If the notes aren't detailed enough then the student could and will find difficulty in studying for the tests of the information that should have been obtained. This course will teach students the importance of studying, especially, as there is so much information given during the course that it can become jumbled.

    Course highlights:

    Towards the end of this course, a huge lab was given. It had eight parts to it. The lab was a culmination lab of everything that was learned. It was a highlight because it shows how the information is related to everything and how the information is applicable.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    For students going to take this course: get a large notebook (a five subject notebook with a hard cover is preferable), loose leaf paper, lots of writing utensils, highlighters, ruler, scientific calculators, and note cards. Also, do not be afraid to do research on what is being taught in class to make sure you are well informed.
