  1. Done. :) I think I'm cross-eyed from staring at the computer for so long and, as before, I'm sure I've missed many curricula, books, and resources. Also as before, please feel free to add to the thread and also to correct any of the information I post. I'll be taking up the first 7 posts with the different categories of physics. Happy reading! :) updates provided by MarkT December 2017 from MarkT : This is a pinned thread for information to the Hive please ask specific questions on: http://forums.welltrainedmind.com/forum/5-high-school-and-self-education-board/ Please DO add new material / sites and reviews as posts here - thank you ================================== Index Conceptual Physics http://forums.welltrainedmind.com/topic/540313-homeschool-high-school-physics/?do=findComment&comment=6153671 Regular Algebra-based Physics Courses http://forums.welltrainedmind.com/topic/540313-homeschool-high-school-physics/?do=findComment&comment=6153673 Honours Physics Courses (Honours Physics) http://forums.welltrainedmind.com/topic/540313-homeschool-high-school-physics/?do=findComment&comment=6153674 Advanced Placement AP Physics 1 & 2 Courses http://forums.welltrainedmind.com/topic/540313-homeschool-high-school-physics/?do=findComment&comment=6153675 Advanced Placement AP AP Physics C courses http://forums.welltrainedmind.com/topic/540313-homeschool-high-school-physics/?do=findComment&comment=6153676 Calculus-Based Physics (not specifically AP Physics C) http://forums.welltrainedmind.com/topic/540313-homeschool-high-school-physics/?do=findComment&comment=6153677 Other Physics Resources http://forums.welltrainedmind.com/topic/540313-homeschool-high-school-physics/?do=findComment&comment=6153697 Teaching Physics at Home http://www.home-school.com/Articles/teaching-physics-at-home.php
  2. AP Physics C at PA Homeschoolers is on our short list for next year. Has anyone taken it or is taking it this year? How did you like it? Any preference for Jack Kernion versus Jeff Lanctot? Any other AP physics C alternatives?
  3. I'm looking to build a full course of physics at home for the boys. What options and materials are out there? If you taught physics at home then what did you use?
  4. What a rude awakening! For years we'd planned dd would do Physics B for the science AP needed here....Now they won't even offer Physics B and it's divided into Physics 1 and Physics 2....I do understand the need for more depth but the changes weren't on my radar at all and since it's so new, PAH is not offering it...Landry doesn't seem to be.... Where to find online AP Physics 1 or 2???? Anyone have any advice? Hopefully, Joan
  5. I received some information today that I thought I would pass on for anyone who might be interested. This is regarding the possibility of a one-year accelerated AP Physics course that meets the 2-year requirement. Earlier in the year I had inquired about an AP Physics course offered by Scholars Online. At the time, I was told they usually alternate this class with AP Chemistry and would not be offering this class for the 2014-2015 school year. Well, I just received this email. Due to my ds' heavy senior year load with other AP courses, he had already decided to take a regular track physics class, but I though others might be interested, Here is what Dr. Christe Ann McMenomy sent me: I have had several inquiries as to whether it would be possible to offer the Scholars Online Physics course next year (2014-2015). Normally this course alternates with the AP Chemistry course, which is already scheduled for the 2014-2015 year in the traditional upper division AP Science slot on Mondays and Thursdays. I am writing to ask whether you might still be interested in an SO Physics AP course for 2014-2015. If I do get sufficient interest, we will post the course for enrollment and work out a convenient chat times with the enrollees later this summer. Course text would be the Giancoli 7th edition instead of the 6th. Tuition would remain the same and syllabus would be adjusted to meet the new AP Physics standards, which recommend a two-year approach but allow for teaching the entire preparation for AP Physics 1 and Physics 2 in one year. Please let me know if you are interested. I thought this looked very interesting and wanted people to know about it. I am guessing the best way to reach her with any inquiries would be to go to the Scholars Online Teachers page and click on her name (Dr. Christe Ann McMenomy) to access her direct email address. Hope this helps someone!
  6. I am really struggling to schedule both math and physics for next year. I have been working concurrently on AoPS with my ds for 2 years, but I am about to back off. I also don't really want to relearn physics, and want him to learn independently, which he can absolutely do. He has excellent focus and drive, but he is young (12) and needs me to plan and schedule his work. I am happy to do this, but I cannot figure out how to do this well if I am not doing the work concurrently. I can make a general annual and then monthly plan, but the daily goals seem impossible to design. So, lets take AoPS as an example. I think the best approach is Regentrude's -- I would love to have my ds spend as much time as needed on the different topics. However, he does NOT like this approach. He really likes to know what specific sections he needs to do, and then feels that if he works hard, he can have a longer break. It is motivating to him to know what is expected and what his daily goals are. The problem is that different sections take differing amounts of time. So some days he can only do 1/2 a section and other days he can do 2 sections. And I can't know which is which unless I have done the work. Also, today I realized that he should not work linearly through the number theory book next week, and I only knew this because I was doing the work. There were just too many challengers, and then there was an entire chapter of just calculating (+,-,x,/ of different bases) that was really dull. I was clear to me that he should split the challengers up over 4 days to do while he learns to calculate in different bases. He would *never* think of this, and I only know about it because I have worked through the material this weekend. I am also looking a physics for next year, considering Giancoli or Knight. But there are just so MANY problems at the end of each chapter. My ds is too young/immature to know when he needs to do more because he does not fully understand. He is just a do it ALL kind of guy, which clearly won't work with the Giancoli text. He needs ME to tell him how much to do. But there is no way for me to know. There are just so many problems to choose from. I can use other's suggestions, but then I don't know if their list is appropriate for *my* son, who is younger than the typical physics student. I just can't see how I can know unless I do the work too. And I just don't want to be doing the work also. I really don't. So my title says it all: how do you schedule/plan a subject that you are not working on concurrently with your dc? Thanks for any advice, Ruth in NZ
  7. Planning for next year and I'd really like to hear from a BTDT mom whose child took the AP Physics 'C' test(s). Could you share how your child prepared for the AP Physics C tests. Did dc take both the parts of the 'C' test? What texts did you use? Any online sources that were helpful? How intense was the prep? Thanks, Carole
  8. I'm trying to find all the options for AP Physics B online instruction for courses with an actual teacher who would follow ds's progress. So far I have PA Homeschoolers - I know this is a new course so it can't have reviews.. John's Hopkins - anyone have comments? Virtual School - mentioned by Dirty Ethel - but which one is it? - I found several Virtual Schools...and is it AP? Distance Education Technologies -(Dr. Loren Winters) any comments? NCSMM - I see it is the same guy as above - Winters - any comments? Any others that are worth recommending? Thanks! Joan
  9. Hi all: My first post after testing how to post a few minutes back. 3-4 times a week I plan to to provide solution to calculus and physics problems posted here in this forum. My only requirement is that please check the problem statement for errors/typos. Also, if possible please do include the answer, particularly for Calculus FRQ (Free Response Questions as on AP exam). Knowing answer saves time to me in redundantly checking already correct solution. I plan to give solution in plain text format here in this forum and if I am not too busy, step by step YouTube type solution by email may be requested from me off the forum. If someone else wants to post the solution please feel free to jump in. Copying math problems in email/forum itself is often times major obstacle. Please see if I could attach an image file that explains how to format math problem with its symbols, superscript, subscript etc. without deviating from the actual problem statement. I have some high school level textbooks from Singapore math (New elementary math, New syllabus math, New additional math) and I will be able to see the problem statements in my copies (hopefully my book edition matches with that of yours). I also have a copy of O level physics from Singapore. Most of the students I tutored/helped online have used very many different calculus textbooks (for both AP Calculus AB and BC) that it is cost prohibitive for me to own so many textbooks. If you need solution to problems from such textbook, I will have to depend entirely on your version of the problem statement. By the way I am in Wisconsin in Fox Cities area. Thank you.

  10. DS and I are starting our Physics w/ Calculus (AP Physics C) course work. We started on Monday and are finishing up Ch 2 (Motion in One-Dimension) We're using both the Giancoli Physics for Scienctist & Engineers, 3rd ED, and Halliday Physics, 5th Ed. Does a solution manual exist for either book? I found online a few of the Halliday's problems in a solution manual however it only goes up to Ch 3 and there are only a few problems per chapter. On the one hand working through these problems is FUN :D . I love math: it's remembering how to work the formulas that is a bit time-consuming right now. I'm enjoying it and while it has rekindled fond memories of doing this Physics as an undergrad I can see this endeavor taking oodles of my time this year. Just wondering what other moms have done whose kids have prepared for the AP Physics C tests. Thanks, Carole
  11. We're planning for next year and Physics is on the course list. I'm exploring options and have not found an online physics course that has rave reviews to enroll DS in. One option is to supervise the teaching myself which is doabe. I still semi-remember my college calc-based physics. It isn't my first choice but we could make it work. DS is working through Calculus under my supervision and will be taking the AP BC test in May. Since he'll have Calc under his belt aiming for the Physics C AP test seems like the route to go. Or is it? Should we just stick with the B exam? I would love to hear from moms who have BTDT, and from the 'don't do that!' camps. I've looked at the texts listed at the College Board site for Physics B and C and am wondering if their is one that you used that your DC really loved and worked wonderfully? Or is there one you'd recommend we stay away from? Thank you! Carole
