Award-Winning Homeschool High School Physics Curriculum
Exploring Creation with Physicshas been voted the #1 homeschool physics curriculum by homeschooling families. Because the science of physics is an attempt to explain everything that is observed in nature,this text is an overview of the advances made over the last three thousand years! And while that may seem like a monumental task, we’ve designed it to be not only homeschool-friendly but also college-prepratory.
“This book shares the fun of physics exploration. It doesn’t just tell you what physics is, but rather teaches you how to ask the right questions so you can find out how our world works. It has you experimenting to see if your idea is correct. You really only learn physics if you discover it yourself. This book starts you on the journey.”

Be able to see the strong connection between math and science
Topics Covered in this High School Physics Course
Some important concepts covered in Apologia’s high school physics include, but aren’t limited to:
One and two-dimensional motion
Newton’s laws and their applications in nature
Work and energy
Physics Practice Problems, Review Questions, and Tests
Because math and science are strongly connected in a physics course, Apologia’s high school physics course includes:
On Your Own questions that students stop and answer while reading through their textbooks. This ensures that students comprehend the materials before moving forward. This is a critical step in understanding materials and building a strong foundation as new knowledge is gained.
Review Questions at the end of each module, which serves as a Study Guide for students studying for the provided module tests.
Additional study tools include Practice Problems and the Extra Practice Problems for each module. These are to be solved after each module and serve to give the student review and practice of the important quantitative skills just covered. These are also additional study tools for the module tests.
I would not have survived Organic Chemistry 1 and 2 and calculus-based Physics 1 and 2 in college without the Apologia Live Online Classes you taught. The concepts stuck with me. I wanted to thank you and tell you to keep up the good work!
