If you have no plans on working in the engineering or medical field,
or going to college (since any highschool course is easy comparatively), don't worry about it.

Potassium(or anything in that column) and water don't mix very well trust me on this



Course is only good for medical, and biology related degrees, and maybe a few engineering degrees(like chemical engineering)

I have a Electrical engineering degree and never needed it at all
Physics, and tons of math yes. chemistry no.

This is an idea for a friday or somthing.
first ask your teacher if you can get some water and put some chemicals in it.
if he/she says yes then ask for francium (he/she will say no)
then ask for caesium (he/she will say no again)
then ask for rubidium (again he/she will say no)
then finally ask for potasium (hopefully he/she will say yes)
put that in water and you will get your entire class's attention.

or ask for rubbing alcohol and put it in a large water jug and light it on fire after it has been spread around inside

all of this will definitely make your stay at Honors Chem. More interesting

wow
Kinda why I liked liberal arts classes all the hot girls were in those. I can remember there were 3-4 women in the engineering core classes I took, and 1 I mistook for a guy originally(seriously till I saw her go in the womens bathroom I thought it was a guy), others didn't look much better.

I also found Chemistry near impossible. I got fall marks in all the experiments but failed the exams - got a D

In hindsight failing Chemistry was one of the best things that happened to me.

this is true. What you do in high school doesn't matter.

Honors chemistry in high school just means you are memorizing more stuff anyway.

That is the sacrifice for studying a technical field. The girls in the same classes with you butt-ugly, but when you are in the workforce as an engineer or whatever, and you have graduated and are bringing in the big bucks, that is when the hot girls will come!

um, is that what white castles are made out of?

i was so good at chemistry, physics and DNA chemistry, i used to know all the names, all the compounds, how to balance electrons to make chemical equations and everything and now it all went by-by from being unused for over 5years[&o]
