Berean Builders’ Discovering Design with Physics is a high-school, college-prep physics course by Dr. Jay Wile. Designed for homeschooled students to use independently, this course features at-home experiments, a simple format, and thorough text that provides extensive coverage of physics from a Christian, creation-based perspective. This full-year course covers topics including Newton’s Laws of Motion, Newton’s Law of Universal Gravitation, work, energy, and power, waves, sound, and light, electrical potential, electric fields, circuits, resistance, and current, magnetism, and magnetic fields. Concepts are woven together with their mathematical applications to help students learn to think like physicists. The course consists of 180 hours of instruction, 35 of which involve hands-on experiments that use only household items. This course can be completed in one year at the pace of one chapter every two weeks, working approximately 45 minutes-1 hour per day. An optional 36-week schedule with weekly assignment checkboxes is provided. Includes access to a course website with helpful videos for math equations, experiments, and detailed discussions. Prerequisite: Geometry and knowledge of sine, cosine, and tangent.
The Discovering Design with Physics textbook contains the main text with important information and vocabulary highlighted. "Comprehension Check" questions and examples are included throughout, and each chapter ends with a review, which is to be completed before taking the chapter test (included in the test book). Each chapter has at least one experiment with 41 experiments in total. Answers to Comprehension Check questions and a Glossary are also included 472 pages, hardcover. Combine with the Discovering Design with Physics Answer Key & Tests book, sold separately. 472 pages, hardcover. High school.
