    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It was a very different course. It was a self taught course, so it involved a lot more responsibility than is generally required from a high school student. What I liked about the course was that I was able to structure the material and time table to what worked for me. For instance thermochemistry and equilibrium took longer to grasp, so I was able to structure the course to give myself more time to study this material. The instructor was there to provide study material, tests, and lab equipment.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite parts of this course was the labs. One of our favorite labs was when we submerged different chemical reactions in ice water and boiling water. Some of the reactions changed color, but what was really cool was being able to manipulate what color it would turn. By changing the temperature we were able to reverse the reaction or let it continue.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are going to take this course you need to be committed and have a game plan. Don't be afraid to ask for help. You don't have the time to flounder around when there are students, textbooks, instructors, and other modes of information at your disposal. You also need to create a schedule of what you are doing and what you are going to do next. There is so much information that it can be overwhelming if you don't create a plan. Most importantly you need to go with the flow. You can't master everything and won't get everything right the first time. The subjects I ended up becoming strongest in were the ones that I initially messed up the most. Don't let yourself get down.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would totally recommend it because Mr. Boyce is such a great teacher. He helps you on the course work if you don't understand it and he always makes sure that everyone is on the right page. The course itself is great as well because you learn so much.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were watching Paul Anderson and learning about the mole cannon. We actually shot our moles that we made around the classroom to see which one went the farthest. I learned a lot more about chemistry and a lot more in depth as well. ApChem is such a great class that everyone should take.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    A student taking this course should definitely know time management. The course work is fairly tough but it is not too bad if you manage your time and actually sit down for a couple of hours to do the homework.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is a difficult course, and if you're anything like me, you probably don't want to do much senior year. This course burdened that and eventually led me to too much stress.

    Course highlights:

    Time management was a big contributor to this course.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you are willing to work
