    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Science has never interested me- and I'm not exaggerating. I'm an English person, where any answer goes as opposed to having to spend 15 minutes on one question just to find out that because I didn't square the velocity in step one my entire answer is wrong. However, when I took Regents Physics my junior year, though my understanding of the subject hindered, I was interested in what I was learning. Physics is the like the home base for other sciences- everything comes back to it. It's all about how the world works, and why things are the way they are. I liked it to the point that I am currently taking AP Physics- and that's something that not even my teacher expected. Though it was one of my harder courses, it remains one of my favorite classes.

    Course highlights:

    From this course, I learned that everything we do comes back to Physics. It's come to the point that I actually think about inertia when I'm driving (this class has really consumed me, if I'm being honest, it being the most difficult). I learned that there are some things that still have no answers that we must simply neglect, and others have one, and only one (no matter how much I argue) answer.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not underestimate the amount of time it may take to get to one conclusion. The questions posed in the course are a process, it may take even more than one unit to be able to go back and understand what it was you learned exactly. But everything is connected, and everything will work itself out if you don't allow yourself to get frustrated.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it easy to comprehend at an easy level if math is your strong suit. It is also a fun course where most of the time you are active in doing labs than class lectures.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course would have to be how relatable it is to trigonometry and how the initial velocity is easy to find with trigonometry.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would suggest going to get help when you the get the chance. With all the worksheets that has to get done, you want to have them right to get credit. So going help when it gets confusing is one's best bet.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is great for students looking to join gaming fields or any science fields. Whether you want to simply get another credit for graduation or need for your college major, I'd recommend this class. It's fairly challenging, but not too hard. It's a good course with a helpful teacher.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a deeper understanding of physics which will certainly help me in my field of study (game development). You learn about a range of topics from atoms to electrical circuits.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely take advantage of the resources given to you (the APlusPhysics website and books). Make sure to do your Castle Learning assignments as well. Forgetting those might make a dent in your grade.
