Prerequisite: Precalculus or Saxon Advanced Math completed or concurrently
Video Lectures & Labs do the teaching For You
DIVE Physics teaches every lesson in the Saxon Physics curriculum. It covers all the topics normally found in an AP Physics B level course including speed and velocity, torque, impulse/momentum, relativity theory, work, gases and thermodynamics, potential and kinetic energy, electricity and magnetism, circuit theory and Ohm’s law, and reflection and refraction. It is also contains 23 video labs and a printable lab manual developed by Dr. Shormann to supplement the Saxon course.
Advanced or Standard Course
This is an honors level course. However, it can be used as a standard high school course by administering the weekly tests and quarterly exams as “open note.”
Taught from a Biblical Foundation
This course also teaches science hitsotry, with a special emphasis on the distinctly Christian foundation of modern science. This foundation is lacking from secular courses and even many Christian courses, but is essential education for the informed Christian.
Saxon Bookset Required
Because physics is math based, the Saxon method of incremental development and continual practice has worked best for our students. Therefore this course was designed to teach Saxon Physics and does not work well with other texts. The complete Saxon Physics bookset, including student text, homeschool packet with test forms, and solutions manual, are required.
Earn 8 College Credits
Upon completion of DIVE Physics, we recommend our CLEP Professor Physics, a three week course that prepares students for the AP Physics B exam. Visit the CLEP Professor page to see how you can earn up to 34 college credits for their high school courses.
