    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    AP Physics 2 teaches about the way the world works in areas most people may not have ever considered. The class was a great experience that both increased my understanding and enriched my high school experience.

    Course highlights:

    We looked at electricity, magnetism, thermodynamics, density and pressure, and nuclear physics through involved class discussions and hands on labs. One of the best and most fun projects we did were quarterly movie reviews in which we judged the physics in live action Hollywood productions and graded how well they fit the rules.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course pairs very well with Robotics 3 because of the unit on electricity and circuitry. If you have a hard time remembering concepts from Physics 1 Honors, you should take AP Physics 1 for a refresher on mechanics. AP Physics C is complex mechanics with calculus. If you're wondering if you should take AP Physics, Chemistry, or Biology, physics is the best choice. Physics has the highest level of applications in the real world. Chemistry is a good class if you are really interested, but it's extremely challenging and tedious for those that don't have the passion. AP Biology involves a lot of vocabulary work and can be a very dry class. Physics is by far the best AP science because of the real world uses for the information, the quality of the class, and how much you can enjoy it.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class helps you grasp the reality of how the world works as a whole, the projects and lab activities were very good in this class.

    Course highlights:

    This course teaches you kinematics, circuits and waves. This is just some examples of the highlights, there is much more.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    study over lectures and take lots of notes

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course involved hands on lab projects and in depth lectures that revealed the science behind the way things move in the world. The concepts we learned are used in almost every engineering field and many scientific research communities.

    Course highlights:

    We reviewed the basics of calculus and learned about kinematics, vectors, Newton's laws, momentum and impulses, Kepler's laws, static equilibrium, variable resistive forces, rotational kinematics and moment of inertia, mechanical energy, and simple harmonic motion. The biggest highlight of the course was the labs. Some were impractical but captivating, and others were unique and memorable. After each unit we chose a movie and judged the plausibility of the physics in it. After the energy unit, the class competed in an egg drop lab in which we designed a bungee cord to bring the egg as close to the ground as possible. After the unit on Newton's laws, we raced bowling balls on the floor by brushing them with brooms. At the end of the year, we combined everything we learned to design and race a rubber band car.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to take descriptive, concise notes. Make use of diagrams and color. If you're diligent in doing the assignments, you'll memorize the material and the tests won't be so scary,
