I want to be an English teacher in South Korea.
But, I can’t seem to make up my mind about what courses to take.
I have 5 options.

I’m sure that I’m taking:
• Co-operative Education (Takes up 2 spots)

So, I have 3 spots left to take, these are some of the choices that I might take, what should I take?
○ Science: Biology
○ Science: Chemistry
○ Science: Physics
○ Communications Technology
○Functions: University
○ Introduction to Anthropology, Psychology and Sociology

I know that I’m taking at least one Science course, but which one? :\
Which of these courses can benefit me more?

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 .: What sciences should i take in highschool to become a dentist?
I made a mistake and took earth science but now i want to become a dentist… ive heard that you have to take physics, chemistry and biology… is this true?
im in the 11th grade

Best answer:

Answer by cliftonstewart11
Chemistry is probably the most important science you will need to know. In college you will have to take organic chemistry, so try to pay attention as much as you can.

Any of the natural sciences are very important to understand when persuing dentistry. Physics is important, but not as important as the natural sciences.

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 §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.

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.

Question by Brian: Which science class should I take?
I am going to be a junior next year. As a freshman I took biology honors and I’m in conceptual physics honors now. I liked biology better. The options are chemistry, physics, anatomy and environmental science. I plan to do environmental science as a senior. I don’t plan to do any thing in science in college It’s just so it will look good in my college application.

Best answer:

Answer by Patrick
Take chemistry it looks good on a resume or even physics but not anatomy

Question by logemon1: Should I take chemistry or physics for Computer Science major?
I am a college student and I have the option of taking either a 3-course chemistry series or a 3-course physics series. I am not sure which one I should take. What are the advantages in the field with both of them? What benefits will I gain from each one as it pertains to my Computer Science career? Thanks!

Answer by jpturboprop
Take the physics. It has more immediate application to semiconductor theory….
