  1. I rate myself a 4 out of 5 stars this week. Wow… I just realized that this is our last web post ever! That is crazy. But, anyways, learning the rest of chapter 13 has been very enLIGHTening (heehee). Seriously though, it was amazing learning about why we see things the way that we do in real life and how lenses and mirrors can affect how we see what we see. Though it was difficult for me to fully grasp the concepts of refraction the day before the test, I hope that I did decently on those parts of the test. Having a open book test was a blessing, but it was also a curse. I spent so much time looking up answers to calm my OCD and make sure that I had all the multiple choice questions perfect that I barely had time to complete the discussion and the two problems. I should have used my time more wisely and trusted the knowledge that I had already gained from studying. Thank you so much for this entire year in Honors Physics! It has stretched my brain further than I ever could have imagined, and I am so thankful that I have even more proof that I can do anything I set my mind to with God’s help. LOVE YOU MS. SKINNER! πŸ™‚

  2. I rate myself 5 out of 5 this week. Purely because this is my last webpost EVER. I learned more about lenses yesterday and how they are really the opposite of mirrors. I think the test today went really well. I had no trouble finishing and really didn’t use my notes that much. It’s hard to believe my physics journey at Northpoint is over. Ive learned a lot this year and will definitely carry the skill of picking myself back up after failure on to college. I’ve come so far from where I started at the beginning of the year and finally got an A on the last test!!!!!! It’s amazing what you can do through God. πŸ™‚ Thanks so much for being the best teacher ever Ms. Skinner!! Love you!!

  3. Well, it’s been a good year. I’ve learned a lot, struggled a lot, spend many sleepless nights on labs, homework, science in the news, and many other projects; however, I have never felt more prepared. For that, I rate myself a 5 out of 5 for the year overall! I am very pleased with how much I have learned, and I am very excited to see how I can take all of this information with me to college. For this week in particular, I am glad that we are finally done with light! Though this was mainly a conceptual test with very few problems and we had our notes, I would be lying if I said I was not extremely nervous! Some of the concepts were slightly difficult, and I really wanted to do well after my last test. Hopefully the refraction and color did not trip me up too much! Well now it is on to different horizons. Thank you for all of the hard work you have put into this year and teaching me so much about the world around me and about how great it is because God made it!

  4. This year, I rate myself a 5 out of 5. Physics was really hard, about as hard as I thought it would be. I learned so much, not only about the subject, but about the amount of work I have to put in sometimes. I learned so much about the world around me (which I’m sure will come up again in college) but I think most importantly, I learned how to be a good student. Throughout high school, I have been pretty lackadaisical with my school work. Physics showed me that is not an option. I’m so glad I took this class. This week was a good week too. I felt I did well on the test, and I got my extra credit and makeup work done. As I write this, I have one more assignment left in physics then I am done. It has been an excellent year. Thanks for being a super awesome teacher Ms. Skinner!!

  5. So this week, I’m gonna give myself a yearly rating. I think I deserve a 3.5 outta five. Honestly, I came into physics thinking it was something everyone hyped up, but it would actually be pretty easy. Boy, was I wrong! This class has been the absolute hardest class I’ve ever taken, and probably will ever take. Though there were moments where I though I’d die, this class has grown me a lot, and taught me a bunch about hard work and perserverence. As Mrs . Williams has been telling me since the day I began the class, I’m really grateful for the lessons I’ve learned this year. Ok, now let’s take a minute to talk about this week. I felt really good about lenses. The lesson made sense, and I was confident going into the test. During the test, I panicked. The whole open book thing threw me off, and freaked me out. That being said, I tied for my best test grade ever on that test. Now, I’ve reached the part where I talk about my very last day of physics. When we saw our tests, I felt really defeated. I’d tried incredibly hard, and still couldn’t make that coveted A. It says really hard for me. As I’m typing this, I think I’ve got that point where I don’t really mind if I have to take the exam. Though I don’t especially want to, I get that I’ll probably end up taking it. Either way, I’m happy about my performance this year, and I wouldn’t change my decision to take the class if I was given the chance.

  6. Since everyone else did a yearly rating, I guess will too. I’d rate myself 6 out of 5 for this year. I am surprised by how fast this year has gone by. It has been a real challenge, but overall I persisted and overcame all the trials. I will always remember the frustration I had with the Rube Goldberg and other projects. Next year in college I will be faced with many new challenges. I think the knowledge I have gained from this class and the lessons I have learned will prepare me for these challenges. There were days that I dreaded coming to class, but now that I am finished I have a different outlook on it. Overall I am glad I took this class because I feel that it has thought me lessons I would not have learned otherwise.
