Apologia’s award-winning Advanced Physics curriculum is written to your student in a conversational tone and cultivates independent learning. This course is designed to build on their foundational understanding of physics, so it’s essential that they have already completed a college-prep physics class like Apologia’s Exploring Creation with Physics, 2nd Edition. Using accessible diagrams, engaging content, and 28 hours of labs and experiments, this curriculum is crafted to help your student understand advanced physics concepts and prepare them for the ACT.
Advanced Physics builds on your student’s foundational knowledge of math and science, helping them understand and master more complex and abstract ideas like general and special relativity.
In this course they will learn about other advanced concepts such as:
- Rotational motion
- Thermal physics
- Electrical forces
- Electrical potential
- DC circuits
- Magnetic forces
- Atomic physics
- Nuclear physics.
Lesson Plans and Materials
The Exploring Creation with Advanced Physics Student Softcover Textbook is written in a conversational format with the author talking directly to your student. We guide them through key learning strategies like how to think critically about what they are learning, identify important parts of the information presented, take meaningful notes, and complete experiments.
Throughout this course, your student will connect textbook instruction with hands-on experiments for maximum learning. They will experiment with ping-pong pendulums, measure their vertical pitching speed, study adiabatic compression and expansion, measure the coefficient of kinetic friction, and much more. No special equipment is necessary.
