You are kidding me right? How the fuck is chemistry/physics useless?
I learned about electrical current. I learned about resistance, wattage, volts, etc. I learned to build a telegraph, a lamp, etc. I learned the difference between dc/ac.
In biology, I learned about how scientists classify all living organisms. But the most important thing, I learned how physics, connected to chemistry and how chemistry was connected to biology.2
I am in agreement with @exitseven! Took four years of French and even two more semesters have it in undergrad. Pretty much useless other than the class trip I was somehow able to go on my senior year of high school. For me, the math and science courses can be very helpful depending on what discipline you are selecting in college and postgraduate studies.0
I took bio, chemistry, and physics also. I guess I'd say some of my English classes were a waste of time because they were just really about analyzing literature and I'm not interested in that. However, I took a public speaking class that I thought was useful.0
What Girls & Guys Said
I didn't bother with Latin, but I did take Biology, Chemistry and Physics while in high school. I didn't consider these to be "waste of time" courses... not at all.
I wanted to gain entry into the US Naval Academy, and to attended class far advanced of what was offered in high school.0
Science courses like Chemistry and Physics are not a waste of time. I thought the Music class I took was a waste of time. I have worked as a math, science and engineering teacher, so those science classes sure came in handy (as did math).
Chemistry classes in particular impart a lot of knowledge you can use in the real world. It also used to be that Chemistry was the second class after Geometry that college admissions departments looked at to see your intellectual chops.0
I had mandatory science courses for most of high school and later took an advanced course in biology. I currently study biology at uni but even if i didn't i wouldn't think science courses were a waste of time. A basic scientific understanding of the world is very important for every responsible citizen, especially now as we struggle with climate change and dwindling biodiversity.10
I think everyone was forced to take that, it was no choice for my era & physics was a senior requirement lucky i was able to skip due to dropping out my junior year and then coming back to a charter school my super senior year lol but i rmbr they forced biology & chemistry.0
cake decorating... seriously! this was important... not investing or finance, wasn't offerred. not relationships. no wonder...
took chemistry class at a college, during high school
you are way brainier than me...
Freshman year: Biology
Sophomore year: Chemistry
Junior year: Advanced Human anatomy
Senior year: Zoology
I didn't take physics in highschool, I did however took it in the 8th grade though1
Latin. I’m already learned Latin when I was little. And speak French too. I studied n helped my teacher.18
I took all of them in high school. I got really good at chemistry for that one year but now I forgot most of everything.11
Of course we did. And I went to a public high school, too. It was NOT a "total waste of time!" Well, I guess for a woman it would be! With OnlyFans now a thing.0
“Adult Roles” the teacher was a bitch and everyone hates her so everyone left the class including me. All we did was watch movies and made reports on them. She even made a student in my class cry one because her dad was sent to the hospital but she said “Well sucks to be you. You should not be on your phone when I’m teaching” also she smacked her. So... Everyone was recording excluding me. And she was fired.10
Many years ago, in high school, I took Biology, Chemistry and Physics, along with 2 years of Ancient Greek. All of those courses helped me in my career as an engineer.1
yes I had both, but loved physics the most, it made you think and there was math involved.
I had a much better understanding on how and why things wored the way they did.0
I took Chemistry and Physics too, along with Home Economics (all because a girl I had a crush on took it)
The funny thing is, I love to cook these days so it's probably the only one of any use to me!10
I took Human Biology, Chemistry and Physics and then went on to study and gain a BSc. in forensic science.0
Yes, physics, chemistry and biology. Physics was fun, I passed with flying colours!
Would you like to know about colours? :)11
I took biology and chemistry in high school, but I didn't take physics until college. I liked those kinds of classes so it worked out well for me.0
High school classes I would say were all useful in an educational sense. I have a couple of laughable ones from college though.0
I took science, chemistry, physics, biology in high school.0
I took both Physics & Chemistry but they both helped in my study of electrical technology.0
I beg to differ Science, Chemistry and Physics helped make me the nerdy, brilliant, underemployed person that stands before you today! My most hated useless subject was Geography!5
I took Biology, Chem, Physics, and AP College Biology in high school.
While I changed majors in college away from "the sciences" per se, I don't feel they were a waste. I help provide some practical applications to my homeschooled grandkids, use the principles in various things I do every day.
The only courses I consider were a waste of time was in 7th and 8th grade when we took "Home Mechanics"- 1 semester each of Sewing (by machine), Cooking, Woodworking, and Electrical. They were a waste since my mom and dad already taught me to sew, my mom had already taught me to cook, my dad and grandpa already taught me about woodworking, and my grandpa already taught me about electric, fluidics, air/water pressure, etc.
Sounds like you were home schooled in all that before school.
We never called it that. We just called it "life". I had my little Sterling multiplication pencil box and I was good to go!
