Apologia Advanced Physics in Creation Curriculum
"In order to take Advanced Physics in Creation, a student must have already completed a high school physics course, preferably Exploring Creation With Physics. When added to that first-year course, this course "fills in the gaps" and gives the student the equivalent of one year of university-level physics."
"In addition to a first-year physics course, the student must have also completed a trigonometry course in order to take Advanced Physics in Creation. The course provides detailed descriptions of kinematics, dynamics, rotational motion, gravity, oscillations, waves, optics, thermal physics, electrical forces, electrical potential, DC circuits, magnetic forces, atomic physics, and nuclear physics. The student is also given an introduction to the fascinating topics of special relativity and general relativity.
Required Laboratory equipment: None. This course uses household items for all labs.
Prerequisites: One year of high school physics and a trigonometry course.
Labs: Advanced Physics contains 34 labs covering topics such as velocity, acceleration, air resistance, vectors, horizontal speed, inertia, frictional force, centripetal force, energy, momentum, Hooke’s Law, frequency and volume f sound waves, real and virtual images, simple circuits, Oersted’s experiment and much more.
