Apologia Educational Ministries Exploring Creation with Physics (2nd Edition), Textbook

This college-prep physics course is designed for the student who has completed algebra and has had an introduction to the definitions of sine, cosine, and tangent. It provides a detailed introduction to the methods and concepts of general physics. Heavily emphasizing vector analysis, this text is ideal preparation for a university-level physics course. It provides the student with a strong background in one-dimensional and two-dimensional motion, Newton's laws and their application, gravity, work and energy, momentum, periodic motion, waves, optics, electrostatics, electrodynamics, electrical circuits, and magnetism. Grade 11

I have liked the whole Exploring Creation series. We've studied General Science, Physical Science, Biology, Chemistry, and now this Physics text. I appreciate the Christian worldview. My son is doing well with this course, even though he is just now in Algebra 2/Trig and hasn't had a lot of experience with the sin, cos, and tan functions yet. I was a little concerned that it might be too difficult at first, but the book explains it well. It is challenging, though!

The Apologia science curriculum is the best I have found for sound science information in a biblical world view, and the high school sciences are a superior preparation for more difficult college science classes.

We have not yet used this curriculum, but glancing through the text, I think it will be an excellent college preparatory physics, sufficiently challenging as well.

I changed publishers, and this one is much better. It is written in Christian perspective. It is very easy to understand. The author explains why you must do certain things with the equations, and what you are actually doing. He also makes sure that you clearly understand the topics before he moves on to the next. He also lists other sources for additional information if you need it.

Excellent. Well presented. My daughter can basically teach herself with its explanations. I wish I had such a text when I took physics.

I haven't started using this with my son yet, but I have used Apologia Physical Science, Biology and Chemistry and highly recommend using Apologia. The books are written so that the student can pretty much teach themselves and if you are a non science parent like myself you will have no problem understanding the concepts.

Like all of Dr Jay Wile's texts, this is excellent. My son is working through this book almost entirely on his own and is achieving brilliant results. The texts are extremely thorough but user friendly. I highly recommend this and all of Dr Jay Wile's products.
