2024 Summer Class

  • 07/09 to 08/15  12 Classes Tuesday,Thursday 9:00am-10:25am $465/term Location: Online12 See prorated tuition in shopping cart.

    Course Objective: This is the stem Physics class for rising high school students who want to learn stem Physics ahead. We will finish the first 3 units in the book. Students who finish this course will be prepared to take the stem Physics class with ease in their high school.

    The course content will focus on Introduction to Vectors, Equilibrium/Linear Motion, Newton's Laws of Motion, Momentum and Energy, Circular Motion, and Universal Gravity.

    The class is based on an interactive lecture, supplemented with simulations, and problem solving.

    Prerequisite: Algebra 1 or AGS 1

    Text Books: (Free rental from Sunshine library)

    Conceptual Physics Book Cover

    The PDF file of the textbook will be loaded to the class page before the term starts.

    This is a new class to teach AP Physics 1 Mechanics in Winter/Spring term. Ap Physics 1 Mechanics is a good fundation before AP Physics C. Students usaully feel hard to take the AP Physics C class at School since they don't have chance to learn AP Physcis 1. Students who finish AP Physics 1 Mechanics will be very well prepared to start AP Physics C in Summer or next school year.

    Prerequisite: Algebra I/Basic Trigonometry or Algebra II 

    This class is designed to support 8-10th graders to learn to advance or support their school learning by making up gaps. It seeks to broaden students' horizons on a wide range of physics topics. Physics relies heavily on theories and experimentations that are highly quantitative to support conclusions.

    Accordingly, foundational knowledge of algebra is required to succeed in this course. For example, students will be required to find the slope and area under graphs. In addition to that, students should have a good handle on basic trigonometrical functions. In this course, students will learn about Mechanics, States of Matter, Waves and light, Electricity and magnetism and Modern physics.  Furthermore, students will be expected to construct and judge the validity of a logical argument, demonstrate effective oral and listening skills, use technology in a responsible manner.

2024 Winter/Spring Class

  • 01/12 to 06/07  20 Classes Friday 4:30pm-6:00pm $615/term No class on Mar. 29 and May 24Location: Online8

    Course Objective: This is a one year course for students who want to learn more advanced science and prepare for high school AP physics. The curriculum is corresponding to the first-year high school STEM physics. It's a great class for students who have learned advanced math therefore use math to solve complex and interesting real-world problems.

    (1) To build a solid conceptual understanding of physics.
    (2) To apply math skills to solve Physics problems.
    (3) To prepare students for AP/IB Physics classes in High School.

    Prerequisite: Algebra 1

    Stem Physics B will continue from Stem Physics A. It will cover Units 2-6 in about 20 weeks.

    Textbook: Conceptual Physics
    Unit 1: Mechanics

    Chapter 2-3: Equilibrium and Linear Motion
    Chapter 4-6: Newton's Laws of Motion
    Chapter 7-9: Momentum and Energy
    Chapter 10-14: Gravity, Projectiles, and Satellites
    Chapter 15-16: Special Relativity

    Unit 2: Properties of Matter
    Chapter 17: Atomic Nature of Matter
    Chapter 18-20: Solids, Liquids, Gas

    Unit 3: Heat
    Chapter 21-23: Heat Transfer
    Chapter 24: Thermodynamics

    Unit 4: Sound and Light

    Chapter 25-27: Waves, Sound, Light
    Chapter 28-31: Color, Reflection, Lenses

    Unit 5: Electricity and Magnetism
    Chapter 32-35: Static and Current Electricity
    Chapter 36-37: Magnetism and Electromagnetic Induction

    Unit 6: Atomic and Nuclear Physics
    Chapter 38: The Atom and the Quantum
    Chapter 39: The Atomic Nucleus and Radioactivity
    Chapter 40: Nuclear Fission and Fusion

    We will use a few weeks for the final review and test.

  • 01/16 to 06/04  20 Classes Tuesday 6:00pm-7:30pm $615/term No class on Mar. 26Location: 15320 NW Central Dr. Ste D6 Room 1

    This is a new course to teach AP Physics Mechanics, with a focus to prepare for F=MA exam by practice on F=MA exam problems. The Course is designed to finish in one school year from Sep to May.

    1. Calculus (Easy version, could parallel taking it at Sunshine, text 503-915-2956 for detail)
    2. Have finished the Copceptual Physics Mechanics units
    3. Be motivated to work on F=MA problems.

    1. Customized teaching material in class
    2. 5th edition of Halliday, Resnick, and Krane’s Physics Volume 1
    3. Morin’s Problems and Solutions in Introductory Mechanics
    4. Past years of F=MA exams

    Note: The PDF file of the textbook will be loaded to the class page before the term starts.

    Reference Information:

    Our Teaching Philosophy: "Teaching Physics in the right way is hard, and finding the right teachers is even harder. Teaching formulas is very easy, but that does not help in understanding the concepts, and good physics is all about concepts. F=ma focuses a lot on conceptual depth."  

    The pathway to International Physics Olympiad:
    F=MA -> USA Physics Olympiad -> Physics Team -> IPhO

    Our Course Sequence to qualify for USA Physics Olympiad:
    1. PreAlgebra -> Introduction to Physics;
    2. Algebra1 -> Conceptual Physics, at least the mechanics units
    3. Algebra 1 plus Basic Trigonometry or Algebra2 -> AP Physics 1+2 plus F=MA practice;
    4. Calculus (Easy version is ok)-> AP Physics C Mechanics plus more F=MA Practice
