    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The class teaches physics in the most fun and educational way, with a teacher who is very passionate about what he is teaching.

    Course highlights:

    During this semester of the class we learned about how light, waves, and the Laws of Motion work. We explored the reflection and refraction of light rays, and how light behaved like a wave in certain circumstances. We learned how sound waves worked, and how resonance had an effect in the real world. We also learned how to create and use force diagrams, basing them on experiments we did in the classroom.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Every class period started with a question on the board. You should always write it and the answer down, as they always have a connection to the lesson for the day. When you take notes, make sure to draw pictures and diagrams because it simplifies things to show it rather than explaining in words. Also, enjoy the many experiments and labs that are done throughout the class, as they really help show the actual use of the information you learn, and make it more meaningful.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because not only is Mr. Hathaway kind and inviting, but he also has an obvious passion for science. I am not student whom science comes relatively easy for. I have always gotten good grades due to excellent teachers, studying for tests, and getting my homework done. However, the never ending worlds and questions within science have always confused me. Understanding science of any kind has never come as easy as math, history, or english studies. Mr. Hathaway made physics class fun, often hilarious, and a place where I actually well-comprehended physics laws and processes.

    Course highlights:

    In physics class, we learned all about light, sound, velocity, acceleration, gravity; pretty much everything included in basic physics, as far as I'm concerned. We did activities and worksheets most often to learn distance diagrams, how sound travels, and how light is in fact a particle, not a wave. These are a few among the many things I learned about the natural world in physics class, and I enjoyed doing so thanks to Mr. Hathaway.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go into physics class within an open mind, willing to learn and not being afraid to ask questions. The science of physics is filled with problems that can be solved so many different ways, and it's important to not stress over all of the formulas and equations. It is also important to not take any problem too lightly or too heavily. Often with physics I noticed that if I finished a problem very quickly, or took way too long working on it, I was probably doing it wrong.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it really goes more in depth into biology and teaches material that can easily be used in real life. The knowledge of how life works and the mechanisms our world goes through daily is really something that I believe every student should have a deeper knowledge on.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course for me personally was learning about cells and how much the environment changes daily. The inner workings of life are very fascinating, and much more complex than I expected.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice would be to review material daily and always read. An extra book or outside research helps tremendously with understanding the concepts taught in class. Asking plenty of questions is also critical.
