    | No strong feelings either way.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Physics is heavily math related--specifically geometry. In my opinion of you struggle in math I wouldn't suggest AP. However, it's a good ground course being the basis of all sciences.

    Course highlights:

    I loved physics. The fact that it helped explain everything that goes on in daily life was very interesting, and made me look at things in a new way

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    I do suggest studying and asking questions if you feel even the least bit unsure about things. While the course was pretty easy overall everything correlates, and helps you learn the next thing.

    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It challenges and forces you to understand Physics and its complexing entirety.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed the projects we did, like making a rocket.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Going in, you have to understand that it will be hard at first and you have to grin and bear it.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If you struggle with math and science concepts physics will be an incredibly difficult class. It combines everything learned (and sometimes unlearned) in previous math and science courses and presents concepts that are often hard to understand. Although, if you are the type of student who enjoys being challenged and learning new concepts about topics such as engineering and gravity this would be an interesting course for you.

    Course highlights:

    There were a few things that I did enjoy about this course, I was interested by the engineering aspects of the course-learning how to construct efficient buildings included-and did learn a different side to math that made it easier to understand.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to pay attention in class because there will be questions straight off the test, and the only examples you will get will be hidden in the lessons. Make sure you do all your homework, and make sure that you understand it. The latter part will be tough, but the work will pay off when it comes to the AP test and course tests.
