    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I learned a lot in this class, but because I taught myself. Physics to me always seemed to be fun until I saw that nothing cool really happens in this class.

    Course highlights:

    One of the three labs we did where cars crashed or something moved.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to be ready to be confused and teach yourself. Mr. Beal is a fine guy, but too smart to be a teacher.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Ap Physics is a collage level course in a high school setting. It may be one of the hardest courses you will take at West Chicago. But the physics that you learn will allow you to understand the world we live in and how the world works.

    Course highlights:

    From this course I learned; how gravity works, kinematics and kinematic equations, free-body diagrams, projectile motion, energy, circular motion, rotation, momentum, circuits, waves, and how the world works compared to how I thought the world works.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in this course, you must do all the homework and not procrastinate. This will set you up for all the quizzes and tests, as the homework prepares you for them. The biggest piece of advice I would give is that be prepared to get things wrong and fail. We all have preconceived notions on how the world works, but Ap Physics will teach you how the world actually works. Be prepared to unlearn what you thought about the world and to learn how the world actually works. The algebra and equations can be intensive and figuring out how to solve problems can be frustrating. But just stick with it, go in for help, think before you try, draw a picture to visualize the situation, and you will be find.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is a good course to learn about college level science.

    Course highlights:

    College level testing and notes were taught.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study hard and do the homework!
