Exploring Creation with Physics.

Apologia

Only a basic understanding of Trigonometry is required and very little at that. This book does include labs that can be done at home.

Has anyone used the Saxon Physics Laboratory Experiments supplement? If so, was the materials list extensive, expensive, or readily found household objects? 

 

Thank you!

Regular Algebra-based Physics Courses

 

Name: Introductory Physics

Publisher: Centripetal (non-religous), Novare (old earth Christian)

Where to buy: Novare

Centripetal

Level: Reg Physics

Class: Yes. Wilson Hill

Teacher Resources: Yes, on CD and a separate solutions manual (answers to math questions are in text). There are additional resources available at the Novare Yahoo Group site. This includes model answers for non-mathematical questions for some of the texts.

Lesson Plans: Yes, on the Teacher Resource CD

Secular/Christian: See Publisher. Teaches mainstream science, but discusses "wonder" (Centripetal) and God (Novare).

Program includes labs: Yes. Student information is in back of text, instructor material available separately.

Lab kit available: More difficult materials available for purchase

Math background needed: Strong prealgebra and current Algebra enrollment.

Comments: These books are not very big. 

 

 

Honors (Algebra-based) Physics Course

 

Accelerated Studies in Physics and Chemistry

Publisher: Centripetal (non-religous), Novare (old earth Christian). They use the same solutions manual.

Where to buy: Novare

Centripetal

Level: Honors Physics

Class: Yes. Wilson Hill

Teacher Resources: Yes, on CD and a separate solutions manual (answers to math questions are in text). There are additional resources available at the Novare Yahoo Group site. This includes model answers for non-mathematical questions for some of the texts that are linked from a post there.

Lesson Plans: Yes, on the Teacher Resource CD

Secular/Christian: See Publisher note. Teaches mainstream science, but discusses "wonder" (Centripetal) and God (Novare).

Program includes labs: Yes. Student information is in back of text, instructor material available separately.

Lab kit available: No

Background needed: Strong Algebra 1 program (like Dolciani or Forester) AND a Physical Science course.

Comments: I feel that this book is a "step" in the publishers advanced sequence.

 

It assumes student has had a strong intro to physics through a math-strong Physical Science course (like theirs or Derek Owens) and is solid on Algebra 1. For example, momentum doesn't seem to be covered, it is assumed student knows this from physical science. The author is a fan of the Forester series and just looking ASPC over, I can see the connection. The last five chapters are chemistry. More about the "physics-first" sequence here: https://www.novaresc...-math-sequence/

 

ETA: There is an additional "vector physics" book, but I'm not sure where to place it. I don't know if it lines up with any of the AP or SAT physics tests: https://www.novaresc...odeling-nature/

Physics Fundamentals from Georgia PBS now have teacher materials behind a paywall rather having to contact them. $20. https://sellfy.com/p/brgJ/
