Physics 101 DVD Curriculum
The Mechanics of God's Physical World
Explore the fascinating science of physics and study the principles and laws that drive the natural world.
With over eleven hours of information packed into four DVDs, this series presents everyone with a rich opportunity to study the clockwork of God's universe. Included on Disc D is a printable (digital PDF) guidebook with quizzes covering the material presented in each segment and a one-year high school course booklet. The guidebook allows the student to easily review all the information covered in the films. Each guidebook segment includes a multiple-choice quiz and discussion questions.
Physics Made Simple!
Physics can be a complicated subject, but that doesn't mean that it must be boring and impossible to understand. Veteran filmmaker Wes Olson will take you on a journey into the incredible universe created by God, from Newton's laws to the complex concepts behind quantum mechanics. Once you have finished this course, you will feel at ease discussing relativity, explaining the correlation between energy, mass and the speed of light, and perhaps. even Schrodinger's cat.
From Our Homeschooling Family to Yours
Physics 101 was developed and hosted by Wes Olson, Multnomah School of the Bible graduate (now Multnomah University), veteran filmmaker of 20 years, and producer of Biology and Chemistry 101. Wes guides you through the science of physics; untangling and decoding complex terms and ideas into an organized and easy to use format. This DVD course will give your children a thorough overview of the world of Physics.
Your Complete High School Level Physics Course?
It depends—homeschooling families’ approaches to teaching and learning are far from cookie-cutter in design. For some families, this set of DVDs— which are very comprehensive in scope—will be enough to provide a thorough grounding in Physics. Other families may prefer to use these DVDs as a starting point, one that provides their children with the correct foundation; an exciting eye and mind-opening overview of physics, before beginning textbook study. A 26-page Course Accreditation Program booklet is included in a printable (digital PDF) format, for those who want the DVDs to form the foundation of a full school year's Physics course. In either case, students will find the series captivating and unusually informative. In fact, the entire family might enjoy watching each segment together and engaging in lively discussions about the material.
