    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course to anyone who enjoys using math to solve problems! This course introduces (or builds upon) the interesting topics of electromagnetism, potential energy, current electricity and more. By learning about the mechanisms behind natural phenomena, students are able to better understand the world they live in. There are generally practice problems with answer keys to help you become familiar with the content of each lesson. There is a quiz and a test for each unit, aswell as Labs (each Lab report is due 1 week after the experiment is performed).

    Course highlights:

    This course includes units on mechanics, static electricity, current electricity, electromagnetism and a brief unit on radioactivity. For myself, a highlight of this course was learning about how an electric current can be created using magnetism, and the useful applications in our society. I also enjoyed learning about potential energy (and how energy can stored). Essentially, this course gave me a greater appreciation of the importance of science in our everyday lives.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay close attention in class - the teacher knows what they are talking about. If you are having trouble understanding something, ask for help or clarifications ASAP. The next lesson is likely to build off of what you just learnt, so if you don't have a good understanding of the fundamental concepts, it is difficult to follow the next lesson. Also, stay organised and avoid procrastinating. It may be tempting to leave a lab report to the last minute, but if you run into any unexpected challenges then you won't be able to ask questions for clarification.
