    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because the style of the class is preparatory for college and more advanced science classes. Also, I learned a lot that other physics students in other classes did not learn. The teacher always told us that the tests were college tests which means, as high school students, we were taking college level tests which will make us ready to embark upon our journey through college science classes.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot in this class such as how to calculate the motion an object makes and discovering how sound and light effects the world around us and how we perceive everything. Although I learned a lot about physics in general, I also learned to never give up if I do not understand the topic. The teacher of this class is adamant about his students figuring out problems rather than him just telling the answer. I appreciate the way the teacher does this because it forces us students to think creatively and makes us figure out our problems independently.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice to any student considering taking this course is to definitely take the course. The course will prepare students for senior year of high school, for college, and for life in general. In addition, I would like to encourage the students to never give up in this course. There were some nights where I felt overwhelmed and confused, however I persevered through these difficulties and eventually figured out all of my questions.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Though required, this class makes physics enjoyable and easy to understand. It teaches the fundamentals of physics and its laws thorugh daily practice problems in class and for homework. As well, hands on labs at the end of each unti cover the material taught right before the test, making it helpful to understand what you need to review.

    Course highlights:

    This class mostly hit the fundamentals of physics and its basic laws, however I learned more about how to understand math based courses through this class. To pass this class, you MUST do the practice problems to fully understand the concpets, giving me a better understanding of how to learn math based disciplines for college.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the practice, even if it's optional! Learn to review your work to find mistakes, then rework problems to correct them. Find other problems similar to those given to drive home the material.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class taught me so many useful techniques I can apply to my chosen field of study. The class is so applicable to everyday life and tasks.

    Course highlights:

    I really felt the teacher's ingenuity and passion for the subject, so I picked up a similar passion. One of my favorite units was about sound/light waves. The teacher was able to explain how we can get the radio in our cars and how our polarized lens in our sunglasses work.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You definitely need to pay attention in class. Work all the given study guides because what is on the study guide is on the test. Don't only focus on doing problems, a good chunk of the course is learning the principles of a chapter.
