    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is worth taking even if you do not want to pursue a career in a medical field. It is NOT a blow off class, so don't take it if you are lazy. Mich assigns notes for you to take off of the online book, but you are never tested over that material so do not do it; however, make sure you complete the weekly WP assignments because that will majorly boost your grade. The quizzes in lab are difficult so make sure you study for those because they can sink your lab grade. You can do it!

    Course highlights:

    The labs were actually incredible. It was so cool to get to see animals up close and personal. Discussion is immensely encouraged and that is such a fun part of the class - you learn a lot about a lot.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study for lab quizzes. The tests are basically the notes, but they aren't difficult if you pay attention in class. The muscle practical is WAY harder than the bone practical so make sure you study for that one and keep your general lab grades up so that it won't sink your grade.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course for all students, and not just ones interested in science. Not only was this course extremely interesting, but it was tied into everyday life and into questions we have about our body daily. We should know our body to the fullest extent, and this course helps you do that in a fun and interesting way.

    Course highlights:

    The course goes through every system in the body from the nervous system to endocrine. The class is very in depth and usually uses dissections. I learned how every system in my body works and how they interact with one another. I also learned practical dissections, all the bones in the body, and every organ and its function.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention during class because simply reading over the notes can be confusing. Teachers know what they're talking about and can connect the information better than you can on your own simply using notes. If you have a queasy stomach, be weary because there will be dissections and medical videos that you need to watch.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend AP Chemistry, especially if you are thinking about going into a medical field. It is interesting, fun, and teaches you the basics of chemistry that you will need to know for college. I didn't only learned about science, but learned how to struggle through tough problems and teach myself how to figure out problems instead of immediately running to my teacher for help.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights include chemical reactions, bonding between atoms, and other basics of chemistry. We didn't get to study organic chemistry, but went into depth of things we studied the year before. I learned how to calculate the amount of atoms present in different materials, identify acids and bases through chemical reactions, and identify the types of bond being shown by their shape and properties.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready to work independently and within study group. It takes a large amount of math and problem solving skills but will help prepare you for college.
