A Few Big Assignments
Great Intro to the Subject
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Was a great course, and overall learned a tremendous amount of information.
Course highlights:
Learned about multiple laws including laws of physics, learned about many equations abs how to apply to every day life.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Work hard, and study, and make sure you have the right mind set going into the course
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Known at my school as AP Physics 1, it's one of the more difficult courses, combining math and science and challenging you to think deep, while explaining the mysteries of the universe. While being difficult, this course was manageable due to the class configuration. I had three other students at my table all year to help discuss difficult problems with, and really learn the benefits of working as a team versus an individual, as well as how to value each person's individual strengths while recognizing your own as well.
Course highlights:
I learned a lot about the mathematics behind the world, and the history behind some of the most fundamental principles of physics, like objects of different masses in free fall. I also learned graphing skills that I've been able to transfer to other subjects. Perhaps the most interesting highlight of this course was the way all of it built on itself. For several weeks, you would cover 3 or 4 units of material, but it melded together as one cohesive subject, instead of a few disjointed topics.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Know basic algebra rules. Honestly, that's pretty much the only thing that would trip you up aside from the concepts. This course is very math heavy, with advanced equation reading, requiring you to do ratio work with complex equations, but as long as you are confident up to Algebra 2, you'll do well.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
You will never feel more motivated to learn about circular motion than when you are in this man's class. He will make you love physics as long as you love enthusiastic teachers.
Course highlights:
The highlights were every time he would introduce a lesson. He would preface it in such a way with such gusto that I would be excited to learn.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Ask lots of smart questions. He'll appreciate it.
