Happy holidays. Hope you all are having a good time :)
Monique, could I possible ask you regarding the intro to mechanics. As you know AOPS do not offer it online and we cannot take it as we are far far away in Europe :) so I would really appreciatively if you could share with me a name of the book they are using for this program. My kiddo is like yours, wishes to go into bio engineering and he would really love to start mechanics too :)
Hello and happy holidays! This is the first year that AoPS is offering the course. They are trying it out locally in San Diego, where AoPS is headquartered, which is also what they did with BA Online before it rolled out worldwide. They don't have a book for the course. They are using something they put together on their own online (and it is embedded into the course), so it doesn't even have a name. This year is sort of the guinea pig year to figure everything out, so I imagine that they will roll the course out online and/or to the other academy locations in some form in the near future. Sacha does plan to take the f=ma course in the fall, which would be the next step up, if your son is interested in mechanics.
