Frequently Asked Questions about Physics

Open All | Close All

  • What topics will I learn about in Physics?

  • How much homework is in Physics?

    We estimate that the course workload will take 5-7 hours per week. 

    During a typical week in this course, students will complete the following coursework:

    • 60–90 minutes of live class instruction
    • Three 10-20 minute recorded lectures 
    • 2-4 problem worksheets
    • Quiz, lab, or test

    Throughout the year, students will also complete the following tasks: 

    • Fall semester final
    • Spring semester final

     

  • What books will I use in Physics?

    The official booklist for Physics is now available. In the official booklist, you will find information about the editions, book descriptions, and ISBN numbers.

    You can order course materials for competitive prices through our Christian Book Distributors bookstore. Use the Textbook Finder to locate the required resources for your courses. Please note that while most books are available through Christian Book Distributors, some titles are not carried and will need to be purchased elsewhere.

  • 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 II course. We recommend completion of or concurrent enrollment in a Pre-Calculus course also.

    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.

  • What is a Live Online Class Session in Physics?

    In every HSLDA Academy course, students meet weekly with their instructor and classmates in an online classroom for additional teaching, discussion, Q&A, or group activities. The class sessions are interactive and are conducted using a web meeting software with video, audio, chat, and application sharing capabilities.

    Scheduled, real-time sessions in the online classroom are not the only form of instruction available in a HSLDA Online Academy course, but are offered in addition to lectures or other instructional materials that students are able to access online at their convenience.

    When they register, students will need to select a particular class section and live class meeting time. Additional class sections may be added to the schedule at a later point in the course registration period. Registered students will be notified of any changes to the live session schedule.

  • What if I have a schedule conflict with listed Physics class times?

    All live class sessions are recorded for later viewing. While it is recommended that students attend each live class session, students can make arrangements to watch the recordings and receive full participation credit.

    Students should contact their instructor at the start of their course to inform the instructor of any foreseen schedule conflicts.
