    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Physics is an extremely challenging class but applies advanced math concepts and concept based reasoning in order to answer problems. This style of problem solving facilitates an easier aquisition of new ideas in higher level classes.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed learning about kinematics and the various projects that were used throughout the year. They provided a concrete basis on which to base all our newly learned concepts.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay on track and do not stress about the deadlines. Work as the work comes and never procrastinate. Take any criticism given by the teacher and improve.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    AP Physics 1 is not for the faint of heart. It requires a lot of time out of school with labs and daily homework. If you don't plan to do the homework don't plan to pass the class. If you are up for the challenge and the work go for it.

    Course highlights:

    AP Physics is very complex and I can't say I even know how to do everything we learned.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep up with the labs and try to finish everything before deadlines because if you get stockpiled with work you will find yourself buried in stress.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The course was very challenging, requiring a least an hour a night to study and to do homework. It is easy to fall behind if you do not keep track of due dates, as the course goes at a very high pace. however ever scary it may sound, keep in mind that mostly everyone has taken this course or will take this course, so it is definitely not impossible to survive.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how the laws of physics can be applied to real life. You will also learn with some practice how to approach problems and thoroughly solve them. I also loved the labs we did to test the physics concepts we learned in the class as it help with understanding physics' relativity to real life.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to be prepared: stay on track, go to tutoring, and ask questions. you must be willing to solve homework questions yourself rather than copying your friend's work. you will never learn unless you perform the problems yourself. In addition when studying for a test, you can't just read old problems over and over again; instead you must redo old problems on a seperate sheet of paper.Basically, the point is that memorizing answers does not ensure you know the concepts. I also recommend researching online for help on issues you may have. there are many free physics based websites that are helpful to apply to your homework. DO NOT procrastinate, the homework takes way longer than expected. Also read any textbook that is provided, it will help with understanding. finally, just relax, and try your best
