  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
  2. First post. My mind is very cluttered right now, just want to know whatever everyone thinks about the universe in terms of our planet. Do you think we play a huge role? What about other life somewhere else?

    If your child is interested in space science, I would love to invite you to our interactive online classes. In these classes, students have an opportunity to learn science from a former astronaut instructor/homeschooling mom, side by side with peers from all over the globe, ask questions and wonder about the Universe. Please see the details below. http://www.artofinquiry.net/ Testimonials

  4. OK, please bear with me as this is a long story but I am hoping someone out there has had a similar experience. This past school year, my 9th grader took a physics class at our co-op. Why physics in 9th grade? Well, for many reasons but the main one was that it was supposed to be conceptual physics. This class was advertised as a dual class for both conceptual AND honors being taught at the same time. We have another teacher at the co-op who does this quite successfully so I thought it would be ok. Well, as you have probably guessed from my title, it ended up being only an honors course. The
  5. Does anyone know where I can get old question papers for the Sir Isaac Newton Exam physics contest? @Arcadia I know that your sons are doing a lot of physics problem solving. Could you please point me to some online resources where I can access Algebra based physics problems? My son wants some challenging physics problems to work on in the summer, so I thought that those might be a good resource. Any help is greatly appreciated.

  7. I noticed that Clover Creek has opened up registration for their online Physics class.There are 2 sections open. Last year, the class filled up very quickly. This seems to be a highly regarded class based on the reviews I've read here. Here's another thread regarding workload and student age that may be of interest.
  8. Is RSO Physics I light? Should I supplement? I want to use it next year with my 3rd and 6th graders. My concern is that it might be too light for my science loving 6th grader, but he has requested physics as his primary science topic for the year. His dream is to be a pilot or an aerospace engineer, so he reads about these topics on his own already.
  9. I've been asked in this thread http://forums.welltrainedmind.com/topic/489738-living-books-approach-to-9th-grade-biology/ to write a living books approach to physics. Although I am a qualified teacher in all sciences, my speciality is biology, so I am sure that others (obviously Regentrude) will have suggestions to improve this plan. I hope that it is helpful to all the poets out there (read humanity types) who want to be educated in physics, but don't have an interest in using a mathematical or textbook-based approach. I have found this week-long project to be fascinating! See post 25 f
  10. Ds just threw me a curve ball and decided that next year instead of the Earth and Life Science that I have mostly all figured out, he wants to do physics. Since the holidays are going to fly buy, and the spring normally has me doing a thousand things at once, I thought I best ask now. I was considering Hewitt's Conceptual Physics, though he will have the math background to handle quite a bit of Algebra based physics. I am assuming that the mathematics in Algebra based would be fairly substantial and the major fixture of the curriculum. That has not really worked out before as Ds is not
  11. 2 related questions regarding the DSST Principles of Physical Science exam #1. Is the amount of Physics knowledge needed for this exam significantly less than for either of the 2 Algebra-based AP Physics exams? [This (academic) year, the College Board split their old AP Physics B exam into 2 exams -- AP Physics 1, Algebra-Based and AP Physics 2, Algebra-Based.] #2. Is the amount of Chemistry knowledge needed for this exam signicantly less than for either the AP or CLEP Chemistry exams? Thanks. - RJ in Delaware

  13. DS17 will be starting his senior year in a week or so. He has taken biology, chemistry and robotics in previous years in high school. He's taken Alg. 1 and 2, and geometry. He passed Alg. 2 last year with a B minus. He understands concepts very well and has actually tested into the genius category in mathematics BUT he has ADHD and following through on details always brings his grades down. He is interested in going into engineering in college. So I have tabs open for the following and have questions about each one: 1. Kinetic Physics - He is a visual spacial learner and I saw this
  14. Does anyone know of a Conceptual Physics book that is free in electronic format? (free and legal, not free and pirated) I found this one: http://www.lightandmatter.com/cp/ but I don't care much for it. Nothing wrong with it, just that I don't like the prose. Or maybe I'm in a bad mood today. Anyway, I'm looking for alternatives, so I can make a good choice. This would be for a co-op class that I would be teaching. Free is mandatory.
  15. We're going to use Hewitt's CP for 9th grade, what would you call it on a transcript? Would a University consider it a full Physics credit or can we call it something else then do Physics again (at CC)? My original intention was to do ICP or Physical Science and I still might, but it seems that it is assumed (by many on these boards) that neither of those is H.S. level? Our state universities don't require anything specific other then 3 sciences, 2 of them being labs. Physical Science is an approved course at the H.S. level in the P.S. here but I have no idea if they actually offer it
  16. Hello, I'm considering this course for a co-op of middle schoolers. https://www.coursera.org/course/howthingswork1 Does anyone have any feedback on this course? Is it engaging? Would it work for middle schoolers? I would like to run the classroom "flipped" - meaning the students watch the videos at home, and we get together and discuss and do labs. Suggestions? Also, can anyone recommend any resources (labs, quizzes, test, homework) to use with this course? Thanks! Dee

  18. My DS is in 8th grade, he likes the smattering of Physics he has had so far in science classes. Should I look for a plan for him to take AP Physics C: Mechanics (aka University Physics I) his Senior year in HS or is it best to take an Honors Physics in high school and take Calculus based Physics I and II in college? He is on track to take Calculus his Junior year. Any real life experiences? (it seems like AP Physics B is a waste of money for a STEM major).
  19. Hi, Has anybody used Intellego Unit Studies for Physics in Middle Grades? http://www.intellegounitstudies.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=3_34_38&products_id=108 I wish Ellen mcHenry had a Physics curriculum :(

  21. Since Conceptual Physics (I'm going to shorten that to CP from now on) gets recommended so often, I thought it might be nice for it to have its own thread with a self-explanatory title. That way, if folks are searching, it's easier to find. I did a search but couldn't find a master thread so hopefully this doesn't already exist. Please feel free to add on to the thread! *Originally posted by lisabees!

  23. I do not know if this has ever been mentioned before on the forum, but I found a great list of links to free stuff for Science Teachers. It is a treasure chest of goodies from podcasts, video demos, posters, to teaching tips, etc. I have just started going through it and it is awesome! It seems to be geared mainly toward high school, but I did see some middle school stuff on there as well. It is called "Science Inquirer" - CLICK HERE Have fun!
  24. Hi my DS is starting his senior year and I have yet to figure out a Physics class for him. He needs it to be Algebra based as he has not taken Calculus. I was going to do Thinkwell but it uses Calculus. It has to have a way for me to asses his knowledge since we are under an umbrella school. I need to keep him accountable, but I can't teach physics! He is taking his math and english at the local university. He can't take college physics there until he takes his math as it is a prerequisite. Any suggestions? Thanks KelliNC now in Alaska
  25. I came across this Physics Classroom curriculum/resource while hunting for something to use for my rising 8th grader. I of course added it to my Free Resource page on my blog under High School Science! I thought I'd post over here for you all to see if you haven't already. There is a ton of stuff on this site....so check it out when you have time!
