Regarding scheduling for next year, does Physics use a [cabbage] load of math? If so, how difficul is the math? (I assume no harder than Algebra 2)

Yes. A [cabbage] ton of math. Honestly IB physics is harder than my IB math class.
Take that as you will.

<ramble>Has anyone else schedules classes for next year, this early? This was my last time ever making a schedule for high school, which deeply saddens me. Ha I remember in eighth grade....me receiving my easy ass freshman schedule. </Ramble>.


Depends on the physics class you are taking. Regular old high school physics requires some rudimentary calculus, while upper level classes can get substantially more complicated. Generally speaking however yes, physics is rather math heavy.

I'd say it's more memorizing formulas and knowing when and how to apply them. With physics, you need a lot of practice with the formulas and how to manipulate them.

Totally depends on the type of physics.

I'm taking a dynamics course that is essentially applied calculus, but in high school everything was simplified (linear, constant acceleration, etc). Don't think I actually had to use real calculus at all during high school physics. Maybe for a few position/velocity/acceleration with respect to time questions.

Is anyone else on these forums doing research?? I know warri0r was trying to way back when and probably got a spot [he was a smart dude that one], and I'm the only other person who I know has done/is doing research.

Anyways, it's all fun and games until you have to present in front of your lab. I'm now in a position where I need to know EVERYTHING about a single enzyme which sounds simple enough in theory but I've witnessed graduate students with 5x the knowledge I have get completely owned by the professor I'm working under. I think I was less stressed when I was chased through the city by 3 huge dudes (okay it was only for like 2 blocks but still).

Also, if anyone is interested in doing research (university) then I'd be more than happy to answer any questions. I've been through the hoops and back :mrgreen:

I don't know how I feel about doing research.
I'd like to complete a master's degree eventually (in engineering) but I'm not sure if I want to do M. Eng. (coursework based, no research) or M.S (research/thesis based).

I'm doing fairly well in school, I just don't know if I can see myself doing independent research or not.

So I spent two months and a good portion of my own time reading Red Storm Rising as a school assignment. It took two months because it's 720+ pages long and small print, not something I can really do often, but I wanted to set a challenge for myself. I was pretty proud when I got the thing done in time.

Today I was told by the teacher that, because very few other students read the books they chose, we have to pick a new book and do a new report. Including me.

Because others didn't do their work, my effort was wasted. :wall:

Why would you have to do a new report? Why can't you just keep writing the one you did for that book if you haven't turned anything in yet?

That just seems like [developmentally delayed]ed teaching to me.

I've done some research with the doppler effect in relationship to sound. Presenting in general is a headache as to how well it can be used.


I was going to eat hot dogs for dinner tonight. I think I will settle for cereal.

So I officially accepted to go to San Francisco State starting in the Fall :)

Just 30-something more days of high school! A week of that being "sitting-in-the-gym-doing-jack [cabbage] -while-underclassmen-do-state-testing". I've been able to get in a lot of Pokemon during school sice classes have become essentially nothing. Funny thing is in every class there's multiple people that playPosted Image

Presenting is one of the best parts of doing science research. I'm flying out to London in a few weeks for a conference and i'm looking foreward to the presentation above everything else.
