    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The teacher Is very good at teaching and does his best to make the class fun. Lessening the stress of being in an AP class.

    Course highlights:

    The field trip to Six flags. We measured the angles of the roller coasters.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you had a A in physics and enjoyed the class as well as thinking it was to easy I recommend taking this course.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I took AP Physics 1 with Beal at WCHS last year, and was eagerly looking forward to this year's class. This year, we covered lots of new materials. Labs were fun and interesting (building motors and speakers) tests were not too difficult, and we had a lot of fun. As a teacher, Beal has a good sense of humor, although sometimes I think he has trouble communicating more abstract concepts to his students, and instructions for labs (and expectations for what we're supposed to turn in) aren't always clear. Other than that, if you pay attention you shouldn't struggle to keep up.

    Course highlights:

    Learn more about circuits and electromagnetics and the impact they have on our everyday life! Study thermodynamics and ideal gasses! Get a brief introduction to modern physics and all that neat non-newtonian stuff! Stare into the face of God and weep at its beauty! All this and more!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you didn't enjoy Physics I, you won't enjoy Physics II. It's similar material, though it's not much harder than the previous course (in fact, it may be easier, since you've already developed the framework to think about the world in the way that physics requires) Personally, I didn't need to study much to keep up - as long as you do in-class work and pay attention to in-class lessons, you won't fall behind.
