    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If you absolutely adore chemistry, and you strongly believe that nothing will get in the way of your love for chemistry, I would recommend this course. If you work hard to achieve you educational dreams and you love doing chemistry related homework, feel free to sign up. If you procrastinate, do not have a love of chemistry, and have a hard time listening to lectures please be careful and take your skill set, values, and physical and emotional health in mind when taking this course with Mr. Stumpf as your teacher.

    Course highlights:

    I took the honors course, which goes over the basics of chemistry at a rapid pace. I gained knowledge on the periodic table, its properties and how the elements contribute to the natural and artifice resources we use on earth. The course increases in difficulty as the year goes on, and even goes into the study of organic chemistry and stoichiomerty. My favorite part of the course happened to be the projects. You chose a subject to study, then create a power-point, or other creative tool that basically talks about your subject in the most scientific way possible. I enjoyed it because it was a great hands-on project that gave me a break from listening to lectures and taking notes. Of course, the project did require that I do an extensive amount of research and apply said research to real life situations. It takes a good amount of critical thinking. Also, the projects are presented in front of the entire class, so keep in mind you have to verbally relay the information you leaned to your fellow students and your teacher.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course takes a good amount of determination, if you aren't a scientific genius. I am not a genius in the science field, and I tend to have a hard time paying attention to lectures. If you want to succeed in this course, you have to put in the effort. Make study habits, go to before school study sessions, ask for help. If you cannot understand what your teacher is saying, go to another teacher or someone who took the class before and passed it. For some, this course may be a piece of cake. So, please do not think there's something wrong with you if you're having trouble. Just put in the time and put in the effort and you'll pass this class. Also, make friends with the teacher. That helps as well.

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this class because it teaches several of the fundamentals of the sciences and sets you up for the rest of your high school and college career. The teacher is good and you learn a lot within the class.

    Course highlights:

    There are several different chapters covering things such as the periodic elements and electromagnetic waves, which apply to several other science courses you will take throughout your entire life.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to study every night in order to get a good grade. Do not get intimidated by the rumors about how hard the class is or how much studying is required- just remember that this course is important and helpful to your success in high school as a whole.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dillman was a great teacher. He was relaxed in the classroom and was the type of guy to make jokes in the classroom that made you roll your eyes but also made the class feel a little light hearted. He was easy to talk to, as well. As for the course itself, the difficulty wasn't through the roof so long as you payed attention to what Dillman said in class and put a little bit of effort on the WebAssigns. The WebAssigns made the class what they were.

    Course highlights:

    I definitely learned how to handle upper level science courses and I know I'll never forget certain elements on the periodic table now. Chemistry is one of those classes that just expands itself and will be useful in years to come--you just have to pay attention and be willing to learn it.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the WebAssigns. I wouldn't normally recommend procrastination, but the closer to the deadline that you do the WebAssign, the easier it will be for you to remember how to do the problems when it comes time for the tests, quizzes, and lab applications. Definitely exhaust online resources as well. Teachers don't put those up to be ignored, and if you glance at them and try a few problems, you'll slay when it comes time to test
