    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The teacher, Mr. Thomas Wilson, is amazing and passionate about physics and his students. The class itself was very challenging, but Mr. Wilson helped us understand how cool physics is and how physics is applied all around us. He would go in depth with every subject while still being able to teach all the information that we would need to pass the course and the ap test.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course were definitely the lab experiments that we would perform. All of the labs that he gave us allowed us to see how physics truly works in the world and how we could understand it around us. We did many thought-provoking and fun labs such as projectile launching (shooting balls out of a mini catapult!) and collision mechanics (crashing carts into each other over and over). I learned how physics worked around us and it allowed me to understand how truly amazing the field is.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    The course is definitely one of the harder courses I took. From the very start you need to be prepared to learn the information as it is thrown at you very quickly because there is a lot to learn. You will be engaged the whole entire time period that you are in that class and constantly learning; there is no time to be slacking off in the class. The workload outside of school is not very heavy or overbearing but it is challenging, thought provoking, and may require additional information outside of what was taught in the class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend it, you learn a lot and what you learn sticks with you throughout the rest of high school. If you're planning on taking the AP test for physics then this class is perfect to take because it really prepares you for the AP test.

    Course highlights:

    Good preparation for the AP test, there were lots of hands on labs that helped with understanding the subject materials and lots of helpful homework. The teacher was always ready and willing to help you if you didn't understand something.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you study a lot, it's easy to put off the homework, but if you do then the class moves on without you and it's not easy trying to catch up to where everyone else is at.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The teacher is amazing and will do everything to help you understand the subject materials. while the course isn't easy, as long as you work hard and study the materials that the teacher gives you, you will be able to pass with flying colors.

    Course highlights:

    I learned all the basic laws of physics, and I learned that Mr. Wilson is the best teacher ever! I learned inertia by watching Mr. Wilson skateboard across the room with a pile of books, and I learned about collisions by watching him throw tennis balls at the walls. His course was very interactive and interesting to say the least. 10 out of 10 would recommend.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You can't blow it off as an easy course, you actually have to study so that you can understand the lessons before he moves on to the next lesson. It's a very fast-paced course and if you don't study to keep up, it's hard to catch up.
