    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this class because I learned how to work through problems even if I was unsure of which direction to go. We always went into why certain occurrences happen, not just what. This class developed my curiosity, and a love for the subject. It is also helpful that there is typically a small class. We were able to work out problems together, and really help each other.

    Course highlights:

    The main part of this class was learning how to problem solve. One major topic in the class is stoichiometry because that can be used in most other sections of the class. Entropy is also important later in the year.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you complete the readings and ask detailed questions. Don't just do the work to get a good grade. Do the work, and try to understand what it means. Even if you feel lost, it is important to at least try something in order to learn from your mistakes.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If you enjoy science and preferable molecular science, the class is worth it. It's hard. Extremely hard. But that's not because of the teacher, but rather AP Chemistry is trying to make sense of a senseless world. The course is demanding but rewarding, and although extremely confusing at times, it's also extremely enjoyable at others.

    Course highlights:

    Firstly, I solidified the ideas that I probably shouldn't be a scientist. I love science, but the very advanced material loses me. Which is okay. Better to take this class and struggle through it than to take chemistry and college and realize you probably should switch majors.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take the class with full disclosure that it is nothing like Honors Chemistry. Walk into the classroom ready to realize that everything you KNOW IS WRONG. But that doesn't mean don't take the class, it just means be ready to think.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because over the course of a year I was able to learn a large amount of practical information. I learned so much about how the world works and got to confirm textbook information with hands-on labs.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that learning science in the traditional lecture and note-taking way does not do the science you are learning justice. Science isn't something to be memorized, but concepts to be learned and understood. I learned everything from why you can't wash butter off your hands without soap to how batteries work. I feel that I understand how nature works better now.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    You have to accept that this class is hard and it will require a high amount of critical thinking and problem solving. You may spend an hour trying to solve a single problem, and that's okay. The goal isn't to memorize something and quickly regurgiate it, but to understand the why.
