    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class taught me so much, and Mrs. Yappel was beyond helpful. I was struggling to hold a B for the entire year, and when the AP test review came, I was doing below my expectations. She helped me tremendously and I was able to pass the AP test, and get my college credit for physics.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were the labs, doing experiments taught me so much, and since I'm a kinetic learner, I was able to get more out of a hands on lesson than notes on the board. The lab that was most beneficial to me was the one about rotational kinematics, because I couldn't understand it from the notes, but when doing the expiriment, something just clicked, and was able to get an A on that test.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you do all of the homework, because even though it's not a grade, it will hurt you when the test comes by.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it provided me with a new way to look at science and math combined. Being a high level class, it got me thinking out of my comfort zone and I was able to enhance my conceptual skills greatly. A challenging class like AP Physics truly enhances a students education.

    Course highlights:

    By taking this class I think I became more educated on different math concepts and a new way to think about science, asides from the original biology and chemistry classes. With different labs we were required to complete, all of them seemed fun or interesting that the whole class wanted to participate in. At the end of the year, for our final project, we were told to make a physics video to help explain our concept we were trying to explain. Overall, our class learned so many new formulas and ways to look at objects. For example, we learned formulas for circular motion, objects being launched at an angle, objects being launched horizontally, etc. Being that I love math, I though this class was very interesting.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Before you decide whether or not this class would be something of your interest, always consider the course's context. This class if very math heavy, so whether or not you either enjoy or dread math, take that into consideration. Additionally, throughout the whole year there are homework assignments every night. So be prepared to be working hard after school to get those worksheets completed. Along with the homework assignments, the day before a test, on average, I studied at least an hour or two to make sure I knew all of the material. Finally, If I could do something differently in that class I would have asked more questions in order to completely understand the material.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The class is enjoyable and very informative. Mrs. Yappel is very good at explaining things, and gives enough practice problems to make sure you understand the information

    Course highlights:

    This class is mainly about motion, and enters a little bit into the fields of waves and circuits. The topics we covered were kinematics, forces, momentum, work, energy, angular motion, waves, electrostatics, and circuits.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise students to do the homework. Although it does not count for points or as a grade, it is vital that you practice the concepts learned in class. It makes the test a lot easier.
