    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The class is extremely fun and engaging. Despite seeming strict at first, Mr. Roup is funny and helpful, and makes even dull lectures interesting. I actually enjoyed his physics class so much that I decided to take AP physics (also taught by him) even though it was a class I originally wasn't thinking about.

    Course highlights:

    I think the section on gravity was one of my favorites. Roup took us to the bleachers on the football field and had us recreate Galileo's Pisa experiment. The class is fun mostly because of all the labs we do in class. We've ridden on bikes, played with magnets, and used a slingshot to launch tennis balls across the halls. The class is definitely not just lectures and memorization, the labs are engaging and really help you learn the material.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to actually turn worksheets/labs in, and do your work. The tests are easy, but only if you have practice using the formulas so completing assignments is key.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course is fun and you learn interesting facts in there about how the world works.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about Isaac Newton mostly about what he did as a scientist, but we spent a day talking about his personal life as well which made it more fun as we got to know more than just the science.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the assignments and study guides. Before the final exam, the teacher will hand back all of your study guides and you can use those to study for the exam.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Physics is a fun fast pace course in which everyone should take. They do a bunch of experiments, with going outside and launching projectiles, to staying inside to study waves.

    Course highlights:

    Net forces, they were the hardest problems of the year but I learned a lot about how stop works, like how a car stops and stays on a hill, and how a whole building is staying up.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    You should know some calculus, and be ready to be faced with a lot of work and stress but it is definetly worth the time being in that class.
