    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course and the teacher because at the end of the year shes going to make sure you know everything that you learned before you go to college. She is so dedicated to her job which makes this course even better and exciting and she focuses alot on new ways to make the class learn things faster. She plays around with her students but is very serious when it comes down to learning. She stays after everyday if you ever need help on a homework or if you didn't understand a topic.

    Course highlights:

    My highlights of this course was when i won the Science Fair over all and my group got the highest grade in the Newtons Law project presentation. You learn alot in the class but so far I've learned vectors, Newtons Laws, trig functions, free body diagrams, forces and friction.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    One advice i give underclass students that are planning on taking physics is that you must study a lot because 1 hour in class not going to get you through a whole year and also don't be scared to ask questions she would easily help you to the point you understand every single step.

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention!! The class isn't hard but if you loose focus your going to make a lot of simple mistakes.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Where do I even begin, this class is packed with learning and entertainment from day 1 to the end. The teacher is phenomenal and you will always understand the material with her methods of teaching. The class is fun, the teacher amazingly passionate about her class, and the topic itself is very mentally stimulating. I loved this class and all that it had to offer. I recommend to all students, this class is extraordinarily educational and fun-invoking. You will not regret taking this class.

    Course highlights:

    This class is so much more than just physics. This class builds on character traits that are important for success. Along with learning about the basics of physics, students develop a sense team-work, communication skills, good study habits, an efficient work ethic, and increase sense of intertextuality amongst other topics. In my personal opinion, this class is full of highlights; there are never any dull moments between the lecture, labs, and activities.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to be successful in this class, student must ask questions when there is a misunderstanding. If they continue through the lecture carrying the misunderstanding then they will never completely learn the material throughout the course of the year because all the lessons build on each other. Participation in class has a major correlation with success, along with thorough note-taking.
