Start on the journey of discovering physics for yourself

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.


Exploring Creation with Physics, 2nd Edition, has been voted the #1 homeschool physics course for over 11 years in a row 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-prep. 

Our 2nd edition Physics textbook has been reprinted in a softcover version. This set contains the new softcover textbook.
