Physics Honors Through FLVS

<p>Has anyone taken this course through FLVS? If so, what was your experience like?</p>

<p>1) How many hours of homework a week?</p>

<p>2) Is it a joke or can you actually learn from it? </p>


<p>I did the class and it is incredibly easy. I literally did the second semester (16 weeks worth of work), during the summer, in just about 3 weeks. However, u will probably not learn much, I did not. However, if u plan on taking a more advanced physics class (I took AP Physics B the following year) u will learn the info there.</p>

<p>In the end, I don't think Physics Hon was not very helpful, other than providing a GPA boost. I did, however, get a 5 on the AP test.</p>

<p>Wait, you don't think it was not hepful? Huh?</p>

<p>Maybe it's because I went through the class so quickly that I never learned the information well. But, the course does a better job of covering topics like atomic/modern physics (i.e. special relativity) better than AP Physics does, so I would recommend paying attention there.</p>

<p>The course did give me a basic foundation, but not something that was necessary to success in the more advanced class. And sometimes it is just wierd and more complicated than it should be. For example, they don't really do a good job of teaching vectors which made projectile motion difficult, even though in Physics B it is one of the easiest topics.</p>

<p>This class was most helpful in helping me discover I had an strong interest in physics, something that blossomed in AP Physics and I now consider physics my most likely major in college.</p>

<p>Do you think the class helped you in AP Physics B?</p>
