About Exploring Creation with Physics
Exploring Creation with Physics is a college-prep physics course that provides a detailed introduction to the methods and concepts of general physics, heavily emphasizing vector analysis. Designed for the student who has completed algebra and has had an introduction to the definitions of sine, cosine, and tangent, this text is ideal preparation for university-level physics.
A Wide Range of Topics
Exploring Creation with Physics will give your student 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.
Apologia: Setting the Standard
Without a doubt, Apologia has been setting standards for science textbooks for years. If you have ever doubted the thoroughness of a science text, one glance at these large textbooks will allay all fears! If your child thrives on detailed explanations and lots of information, Apologia is a great place to start.
Written For Christian Homeschoolers
The full color illustrations and written-for-homeschoolers text have immediate appeal. On closer look, the Christian worldview provides a solid foundation. I believe that a scientist who grasps the God of creation will have a tremendous head start as he moves onward into research and development, treating patients, or further study.
A Word Of Warning
These books are not for every student. They are massive, detailed and require a fair amount of math. A student who does not yet excel at math or will be overwhelmed by the textbook format may lose their zeal for science if forced to proceed down this track. Instead, we suggest looking at the Paradigm Curriculum for a gentler approach that will feed their interest without overwhelming them.
Apologia Is Perfect For…
…the student who loves science and isn't scared by math. He or she may want to pursue a career in the field, proceed to college, or simply satisfy their thirst for knowledge. Many homeschool families have found these to be a cornerstone of their student's higher education and we are sure you'll find them a worthy investment.
Companion CD Rom Also Available
Multi-media Companion CD Rom (sold separately) is designed to be used with the textbook Exploring Creation With Physics. It contains pronunciations for the technical words in the course, animations used to explain some of the more difficult concepts in the course, and videos of experiments that the student would not be able to do on his or her own.
Math prerequisite for this course: Algebra I, Geometry; basic Trigonometry functions
