A Physics Course for the Whole Family
The course will be taught live from Jan 17, 2024 through May 4, 2024 with three lessons per week. Two of the weekly lessons are taught as interactive livestreams with a moderated chat. The third weekly lesson is pre-recorded.
Students who are able to join the live sessions have the option of watching each Monday and Wednesday at
- 10:00 am EST (7:00 am PST) or
- 11:00 am EST (8:00 am PST) or
- 1:00 pm EST (10:00 am PST).
The third weekly session will be a project or lab exploration to be completed any time before the next week.
All students will have access to the recordings of each lesson. Asynchronous or self-paced students can also participate in the poll questions when watching the recordings.
Each lesson comes with printable notes pages and practice problems designed to reinforce the ideas of each lesson.
We recommend watching the lesson with a printed copy of the notes. Encourage your student to use the polls or simply answer the questions out loud. Use the answer key to evaluate what they learned afterward, or, if they are a self-directed learner, they can use it themselves to double-check their learning.

Frequently Asked Questions
When does the course start and finish?
Can we do the course on our own schedule?
Yes. Everything is recorded. You can even participate in the poll questions while watching the recordings. After the live sessions, the course will only be available as a self-paced course.
How long do I have access to the course?
Your course access won't expire. You'll have ongoing access to the course.
What about supply lists or supply boxes?
We aren't selling any supply boxes. We'll post a supply list as soon as it is ready. We'll make an effort to keep the supplies simple whenever possible.
Do we need to take Physics 1 first?
No, you can jump right into Physics 2. A few of the ideas from Physics 1 (such as energy) will be part of Physics 2, but a student won't require the background material to handle Physics 2.
Are there scholarships available?
Families facing economic hardship can apply for scholarships using this form.
How much math do students need to know to take the course?
Any middle school student could enjoy the course, but they'll get a lot more out of it if they have a solid foundation in math. Students who have completed our Grade 6 Math course or Pre-Algebra will be ready. Look at page 6 of the notes preview to see more details of the type of math skills students should have.
Is there a spring break?
Yes! Spring break is the week of April 8, 2024 because we plan to travel to see the solar eclipse.

The doodle notes were excellent, and provided a good introduction for my daughter to guided note-taking. We would 100% recommend these courses.
-Rachel Wilkenfeld homeshool parent
Yours was my 13 year old's favorite class! The guided notes were fun and engaging, and I was amazed at how much material he learned and retained.
