This class was tough.
Course Overview:
This course makes your brain work! Whether or not physics is a field you're going into, it's incredibly useful to take a challenging course rhat or applicable to real life. Creative and intellectual juices flow, which leads to higher test scores, self respect, and diversity! I would reccomend this course to any junior or senior whi has taken, at least, pre-calculus and is looking for an applicable science course. Physics wirh Mr. Beckner is understandable and enjoyable. His students feel accomplished and supported in and out of the classroom.
Course highlights:
This course taught me to never stop trying. No one said this is an easy course; you will find many wrong answers. Although, it is so riveting to be successful in such a challenging course. It taught me that everyone's in the same boat as you and when you work together to solve problems, the out comes arw more successful. One of many highlights of this course was that, finally, a course applied to real life! It's refreshing to learn about rough concepts that you're reminded of in daily life. Now, I see things through new lenses and have a drive to learn more.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Always ask questions. No matter how silly it seems. Someone else has the same concern and will appreciate your confidence! Plus, you'll end up knowing more and being more successful. Do the homework! When homework isn't graded traditionally, it's easy to skip out and wait until answers are given in class. Instead, read and digest the chapters, then do your best on the practice problems. I spent at least an hour a night on physics homework. When you really can't finish a problem, take note of it and ask for an explanation on it the next morning. Finally, look for applicable situations. Seeing how physics fits in real life is life or death in this course. Be willing to set it apart from general math and science classes by looking for real life situations in which you can apply it. This sparks curiosity and often leads to enlightening conversations with the teacher. Have fun!
