    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Super hard class! You need to study and attend tutoring. This is not a class you can just get by in you have to put in the effort if you want a good grade.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how physics affects cars and electricity in the real world.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to tutoring. This is a very math heavy course you have to be willing to put in the extra hour studying.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It lets kids think for themselves and gives them insight into an entirely different world of thinking.

    Course highlights:

    AP Physics and how to learn by myself

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready to work and have fun with it

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    In AP Physics I, I was introduced to the beauty of physics and math. Everything from rotational motions, to circuitry, to wave and simple harmonic motion was covered. The underlying principles of our world were unveiled to me, and I learned so much. Physics, for me, also gave math a purpose. This is a yearlong course

    Course highlights:

    The instructor is amazing. If you are willing to learn and put time in, he is willing to help you (even with basic algebra!). The emphasis on conservation of energy & and momentum is great. Conservation of energy makes life a lot more simple: try solving an Atwood Machine problem with force balancing, then try conservation of energy. Conservation of energy wins. You will also work on a design project- great experience for group work.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    DO YOUR HOMEWORK! You will become more familiar with what's expected of you. Don't give up on the first failed attempt. Try again. Use the solution manual. And ask the instructor for help if all else fails.
