Award-Winning Homeschool High School Physics Curriculum

Exploring Creation with Physics has 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.”

    Using a conversational style of writing, the student will feel as if they are participating in the learning process as the text speaks directly to them. When they are finished with the course, students will be able to do things such as:

    • Relate velocity, acceleration, time, and displacement
    • Use mathematical equations for one-dimensional motion
    • Understand and apply Newton’s Laws
    • 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
    • Electricity
    • Magnetism
    • Momentum
    • Periodic motion
    • Waves
    • Optics
  • 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.
  • Online Course Options

    Apologia’s homeschool high school physics course is available to come alongside your homeschool through Apologia’s Live Online Classes. If your student would benefit from live instruction in an online classroom setting, check out Apologia’s Live Online Classes and our Video On-Demand options.

    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!

  • Bonus Resources in Book Extras

    You can unlock book extras bonus content with an access code provided in the course materials. Within book extras, you’ll find resource links and videos for a more in-depth exploration of the topics covered in high school physics.
