Question by sam: In university requirements, is geography considered a ‘science’, or is it only physics, biology, chemistry?
I know that biology, chemistry and physics are typical sciences, but i was wondering if geography was considered as a science?
In terms of university requirements/applications..? (in the UK)

For example some courses i am looking at, state the requirements of English and a science..and physics was the only science i took at GCSE level, and i dropped it after that.

oh yeah..social studies. i don’t know why i didn’t think of that..cos i actually know it aha :| there was just something in the back of my mind thinking that geography might be classed as a science..like an earth science.

oh well..thanks anyway. [:

Geography is considered as a social study, I believe.
Also, chemistry, biology, and physics are lab sciences, unlike psychology, sociology, and physical science.

Question by : Physics honors or AP Environmental?
My major is to take Meteorology and Atmospheric sciences but next year in senior year of high school should I choose Physics Honors or AP Environmental Science?

Best answer:

Answer by silverwood_07
It really depends on what you want to do in college and your future career.

In terms of learning, I’d go with Physics since it’s an all-around course that’s needed no matter what you pick.

Unless you’re going into Biology-related majors, I’d stay away from AP Environmental Science. It’s not worth your time unless it’s required in your course, because getting college credit for things not in your major doesn’t do you much good.

Question by compscience01: I am very interested in physics and i am interested in computer science.. cont?
Do physics and computer science have similar qualities?

Best answer:

Answer by Mister Nice Guy
In Computer Science you will learn to write code that will efficiently encapsulate an algorithm.
In Physics you will learn how the real world works in terms of mass, energy, force, . . . etc.
These are only tangentially related.

Question by Ken: Should I take AP Chemistry or Physics honors? Read details?
So sophomore year i took honors chem and it was ok, I had a B through out the entire year. Since we only have 3 main science classes that we HAVE to take (bio, chem, and physics) but we have to have 4 years of science. Does that make sense??? so should I take ap Chem my junior year? Then just take physics senior year? Thanks!!!

Best answer:

Answer by Tanner
Yes you should. The AP class is very helpful, if you do well on the test you can get college credits and not have to take the class in college.

Question by tom v: Necessary to take Physics in HS?
Ahh i dont know what to do here.. I havent taken any APs yet but want to take 3 senior year (im a junior now) I am for sure taking…

AP Psych and
AP Calc which will be easy for me
(took algebra 2, pre cal, and now calc honors)

Now for science I dont know what to do. from freshman year to now i took Physical Science which was an intro to basic chemistry and physics, then Biology Honors, and now Chemistry Honors. Should I go on to Physics Honors? The thing is i love science and I wanted to do an AP (bio, chem, environmental.. i would be able to take any of those)
Would it look bad if i didnt take physics? I was thinking maybe to do maybe physics honors AND an AP science. But i think that might be a bit too hard.. two lab science courses..

oh and i know it will be asked.. i have no idea what I want to do in the future. possibly a doctor of some sort, engineer possibly, no idea

Best answer:

Answer by Leo Junior.
if you want to be an engineer you definitely need physics, if a doctor it will probably be required beacause med school basically requires all sciences and math, ever seen a doctors handwriting? probably wont need to good of english.

:edit: talk to your schools guidance counsellor or check some university websites.

Question by Vitaly: I am terrible at Physics, but I would love to major in Computer Science.?
I love computers and programming and all. The technology and the way things work with a computer language is just amazing. I am an incoming freshman this fall and wondering, physics…My worst subject in my whole history of schooling! I had a B allllll year during my senior year. Absolute terrible….But math is all good to me. Calculus, I can do it! But Physics…what do you all think? Any stories you have or people you know that do not like physics but still came through with computer science major?

Best answer:

Answer by Matt Hintzke
Do you actually not like physics? Or are you just not good at applying the math you learn to real world physics problems? If that is the reason then I would stick to it, because physics is hard, I am a Mechanical Engineering major (and actually might switch to CS myself) and I have to take the exact same physics classes that CS majors do. My advice would be to continue trying and eventually I am sure your brain will just “click” one day and you will understand it better. Plus, a B is not bad at all. I myself hate chemistry, but had to take a year of it my freshman year which was terrible, got two C’s. Both were the worst grades I have ever gotten in school. So stick with it and you will be ok.

Question by §Guru Pathik§: What year in college can I take theoretical physics, and how often will I see these words?
Einstein’s outlook on “Reality”
“The Measurement Problem”
We are all one
Life greatest illusion-separation and self
Sacred Geometry
Da Vinci
Astral Projection
“Junk DNA”
9 dimensions
11 dimensions

ODU, is where I’m going , And I’m 17, if that’s relevant.

BQ: If I take theology, ( if you can’t tell I like learning about this stuff) will it be like the Religion and Spirituality( constant calling out and arguing), more than likely a theology professor would be an atheist right? ( I’d prefer to get a professor like Alan Watts ) Would he call me out if he found out I wasn’t atheist? I’m not a fundamental theist , but would I be stuck in a room full of atheists? I have atheist friends , but I’d hate to have to be silent just to avoid arguing.

Or opposite, would I get a religious teacher who would call me out for not being a fundamental theist?

BQ 2 : Which Could I take further ?
A: Major: Engineering, Minor: Theoretical physics
B: Major: Theoretical physics Minor: Engineering

BQ 3: Based of the list of words , what classes should I take?

BQ 4: As I said I’m 17, I was very passive in primary and secondary schools ( I’m really smart when I want to be, but if its something I’m not interested in, I’m lazy , and my grades will show) Going through the motions of my high school years I have cumulative 3.4 GPA, but If I didn’t study it or were apathetic about it in high school, would I be a complete noob in theoretical physics and quatum physics?.

When I was younger I had no interest in most school subjects whatsoever , but now I do.
Ok, thanks I probably was confused by some words of Michio Kaku pertaining to theoretical physics and Spinoza.

Best answer:

Answer by Cyle Monroe
If choosing to go with either a major in Engineering or TP, I would suggest you take Engineering. The marketability and demand of just about any engineering degree is already known to be higher than average, where as TP is a bit more obscure as it is based around theory.

Once you are in college, you can no longer have the mindset of “well this is boring!” and tune out like you can in most of high school. If you are taking on a degree in any engineering, which is widely known to be very math-intense and demanding of your attention, you will need to be “interested” or you WILL fall behind. And as a previous engineering student I can assure you, you will have lecture upon lecture about subjects which will NOT peak any of your interests unless you are oddly passionate about calculus limits, derivatives, or the diameter of a sewage pipe.
I have no idea about your questions about that list of what I assume to be your interests.
Good luck in school.

Question by Nick: Should i take physics Hon or an Ap science class next year?
Hi everyone, thanks to my school being so organize and great at time management, i got my course selection sheet today, and they are due this following Monday ( yay). Well here’s some background- i’m going to be a senior and I go to an environmental science magnet which makes us take 6+ science credits- a the moment the science classes i’ve taken are Biology, Chemistry, Ap environmental science, and Marine science ( all hon except environmental science), and next year my magnet is forcing me to take another two science courses ( which i have no problems with, i enjoy science).

Now I’m wondering, should i take AP bio/chem, or should i take Physics Honors? Will not taking physics affect my transcript in any way? or will it be better if i take an Ap science course? I’ll aprreciate any answer

Best answer:

Answer by The Missy
Take AP bio. Ap classes are better because they look great on college apps. Its also a fun class. And taking this class shouldn’t affect your transcript because it falls under the same science category as physics, but whats best is that it’s AP. Hope this helps.
