Am I ready to take Physics?

Physics with Lab is designed for students in the 11th grade and above. Students must be able to read and write at a 11th grade level or above. Students do not need laboratory science experience before taking Physics. 

HSLDA Online Academy recommends that students have a strong background in mathematics in order to succeed in Physics with Lab. Students taking Physics should have previously completed an Algebra 2 course. Students tend to perform better in this course if they have already completed Chemistry. We also recommend completion of or concurrent enrollment in a Pre-Calculus & Trigonometry course.

Although all laboratory experiments are available for viewing by the students, performing the experiments at home with adult supervision is strongly recommended for a broader and deeper learning experience. Please also consult your state's high school graduation requirements, to ensure that your student is completing the work expected of high school students in your state.
