    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Learning about the laws of the universe and how there is a scientific explanation or calculation for most aspects of life is enthralling and truly interesting.

    Course highlights:

    The teacher, Mr. Rogers, made every day in his class a delight just through his personality. All the magnificent minds in the class as well as friends that you will make. Last but not least, each new lesson has it's own brand new concepts and each concept is like a mind game or a puzzle of sorts, which when you think about it, makes the class seem all the more enjoyable.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always stay on top of your studies for this class. While the homework isn't for a grade, it is a crucial step to solidifying your knowledge on each unit. The more you study, the easier the class becomes and the results are very apparent if you do so.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The teacher is great! She's fun and sarcastic. There are labs each unit to see how the concepts work. Occasionally, there were demonstrations. She prints out the notes for you, so you just have to take side notes or do the problems to the right. She gives you space for it. She also gives you a page of homework passes each semester.

    Course highlights:

    You gain a basic insight into physics. Even if you don't pass the AP test, it's good for an introduction. It's only the first half of physics, so it's motion and stuff.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    You will need to study and take your time doing everything. Each assignment counts, so do them. The assignments are added up into a packet worth a big chunk of your grade. It's fine if you fail test, as long as you have A's in everything else. Like the quizzes are decently easy, the labs are a given if you are very precise with measuring and follow the instructions thoroughly. Usually, you work in groups for this. The homework takes a lot of time, but it helps. The homework passes are extra credit in the homework category.
