Title: Hardest Class You Took/Are Taking This Year?
Post by: ImpaDude on March 30, 2016
The hardest class I'm taking this year is Honors Biology. I have a 93 overall, but it's a lot of work, and it can become a hassle with all the studying, lab reports, and tests that are shoved in your face. I love my teacher though. She helps everything make much more sense.

Last semester, Honors World History was intense. I ended up with an 89 overall, mainly because I enjoy U.S. history much more than I do World.

Being homeschooled, my classes aren't that hard (in fact, most of them aren't even really classes) but the hardest one I have would have to be German. Interdependent Study of Foreign Languages is the worst because you don't have anybody to talk to about it.

You're not the only one. I'm not that bad, but I'm not the best.

I somewhat suck at Spanish/Literature. I don't have bad grades (actually really good ones), but it's really hard for me to deeply analyze the stories we are reading without sounding too general. Too much thinking for me sometimes.

Wow tbh that's actually not bad co side ring it's an AP class! You'll do great I'm sure! Did you have to take AP Lang last year? If so let me know how hard those classes were! I'm considering taking AP Lang in Junior Year

drafting

manually drawing things for accuracy takes a lot of time and patience, and it's especially hard when you're not a very good drawer in the first place.

you spend upwards of 3 hours on a sketch of deck stairs only for the "instructor" to look at it for all of 20 seconds and decide it's 8/10 for some reason

autocad is a godsend lmao

Geometry. Half of it doesn't make much sense, and if you don't understand one section, you'll get about a B on the test, even if you get everything else right. It also doesn't help if your teacher is way too strict.

I would say Spanish 2, but with enough studying and practice, I can get it down. My classes don't usually put a lot of pressure on me except for the occasional project, but I'm sure high school's gonna kick me hard in the balls next year with in every class including  Biology and Geometry.

For Biology, my advice would be to study your ass off. Not even like super hard Ivy League studying, but rewriting notes about the section helps you retain info to do well on the tests. Geometry I took last year in 8th, I will assure you it's not hard, but let me know if you ever need help with proofs. They're not easy, but if you understand how they work, then you'll succeed.

Let me know if you ever need help, I love math and I did fairly well in Geometry, with the exception of a B in the last quarter. The first 3 I got A's in. Surface Area and Volume were the areas that I didn't do great in.

All Math classes. Trig was the worst for me.

Human Anatomy was also tough, lots of memorizing.

Math classes are not the worst for me, but I do agree that Trigonometry was the worst one. It was difficult, with all the complex formulas and all that.

My hardest class this semester has got to be Management for Sustainability. It's not a challenging course, but what I'm doing now is a project for the Port of Los Angeles and I'm doing this in a group. It's not a hard project, but what's making it hard is that about half of my group members are not attending the class regularly. My group consists of four members, myself included.

Apparently Trig is part of Honors Alg 2 at my school but the first semester class apparently never got to it :/

Probably Cultural Anthropology II. It's really annoying trying to remember all the different Native American and Asian tribes that are federally recognized. It's different from the European practice of basically lumping everybody into a select few groups.

The hardest class I'm taking right now is one called ''Steel Structures'' (name translated), which is basically a lot of maths, thinking and physics. Gotta calculate all of a building's structure, every single column, beam, decking and etc. It can be a real pain in the ass and it's a long process to do too. You easily get lot in your calculations which has happened to me several times. I'm currently failing this class, but I can still manage to get my grades up. I at least passed my last exam.

That sounds extremely time consuming and hard!

Its funny, a lot of Linguistics students tell me that Japanese (one of the languages I'm taking) and Spanish are really similar to each other and I just don't see it. For one thing, I dislike any language that pays attention so much to masculine and feminine nouns. That's why German was so hard for me. I can understand why things like die Frau or der Mann have their respectable gender nouns, but why is something like der Wagen male? I had the same problem with Spanish, too much frustration.

They are right in the fact that both Spanish and Japanese use the "rolling r" sound rather than saying it like "aaahheerr". Some sentence structures are eerily similar too. Anything else I fail to see similar lol.

And don't forget about "das" :P Why can't things that are obviously male and things that are obviously female me marked with gendered nouns, with everything else being the third one. It would make my life so much easier.

Yeah, nearly all languages that have gender nouns don't have a "neutral" noun either. I guess Germans like to make things really complicated, lol.

And could somebody tell me why a skirt is considered a male object, while hiking boots are considered a female object?

As a Spanish speaker, German has actually confused me some times too. Some male words in Spanish are changed to female in German, and vice versa. Then there's neutral, something that doesn't exist in Spanish...

I think German is the only major non-Romance language that has neutral nouns. Some people have told me that it makes the organization of nouns more interesting (like how certain objects don't have a gender because they're inanimate), but this rule is largely ignored. You can actually say "das Wagen" in some regions like Berlin, but like everything else it's not recommended.

It's not like Japanese where there's only honorific male/female titles, like "-san" for neutral; "-kun" for young male; "-chan" for young woman, etc.

My Chemistry class was HELL... our teacher/professor made lots of bullsh*t up and he was so biased towards the students who don't study as hard, and called the top students all "tryhards" and tried to lower our grade as easily as he could. Still ended up with 90% tho :P

It's funny that you used "X3" in your post because you could reverse that to make 3X which could then be stuck into an algebra problem:  2(3X+6)-63=25

I'm taking Algebra I (Honors) and it's a bit hard. Our teacher makes it impossible to get As in our class. If I were to translate our grades to a letter grade, I'd get a B. (Geo Honors here I come!)

ELA/English is also hard. Whenever I write, I get soooooo many corrections but I got a B+ average last trimester.

Science and Social Studies/History are pretty easy, though I'm not as pleased that my social studies teacher is making me take World History II Honors.

French is the easiest class, and my teacher slacks off. I'm skipping French II to go to III with juniors...gulp
