Physics for the Logic Stage
Full-year course. Physics for the Logic Stage provides an exploration of the field of physics while teaching the basics of the scientific method. Throughout the year, we will address the concepts of forces and motion, friction and gravity, pressure and work, energy, thermodynamics, sound, light, simple machines, electricity and magnetism.
Prerequisite: Please make sure that your student takes the math pre-test before signing up for this course.
"I adored this class! Every unit introduced me to fascinating new ideas. As someone who struggles with math, I was deathly afraid of the equations, however, after a bit of practice and patience on the instructor’s part, I finally understood, and actually enjoy using the equations now!" - Student Course Evaluation
"Because of this class, I now have a middle schooler who is excited to go on learning about all areas of science. The instructor did an exemplary job of making this physics class both rigorous and fun for middle schoolers." - Parent Course Evaluation
