Engaging, hands-on science…that practically teaches itself!

Discover Physics in 4 Easy Steps…

WATCH ENGAGING VIDEO LESSONS

Students login to their online classroom each week and watch an engaging video lesson. Students can move through the program at their own pace.

COMPREHENSION QUIZ

Students take a weekly comprehension quiz, plus quarterly exams. Don’t worry: it’s all graded for you so you don’t have to do the work.

 

LAB ASSIGNMENTS & HOMEWORK QUESTIONS

Each week, students will have a hands-on lab experiment to help bring what they’re learning in class to life and be assigned thought-provoking questions or practice equations to deepen their understanding of complex physics concepts.

READING ASSIGNMENT

Students are assigned weekly reading from a recommended textbook. It’s optional, but we highly encourage you to grab the textbook (or an alternative textbook of your choosing).

The thought of taking Physics was daunting!

When we started homeschooling, I never dreamed I would have a child that would take high school physics, let alone attempt it at home. My strengths are not in math & science. Thanks to Journey Homeschool Academy, advanced high school science classes have been a positive experience for us! I have confidence my son will be graduating from high school with a quality, rigorous science foundation and will be well prepared for post-secondary education.

If I just had a textbook, I wouldn’t be able to understand Physics…

However, the videos make the concepts easy to understand and follow. The visuals really help me grasp what being taught. And if I still don’t get it, the ability to contact real teachers is life-changing!

You’ve got questions… we’ve got answers!

What is covered in the course?

Great question! Check out the Discover Physics Scope and Sequence here for an overview of the topics we cover in this course.

It’s important to note that Discover Physics is a rigorous math-based, course. Many parents choose to list this as an honors course on their student’s high school transcript. We recommend this course for students in the 11th or 12th grade to ensure success.

What is included in my purchase?

You’ll have access to all lesson and lab videos along with PDF downloads of the student guidebook, lab guide, curriculum guide, answer keys, and homework help videos. 

Physical copies of the guidebook and lab book are not currently available. We anticipate having these books available in the Fall of 2024. 

You will also be responsible for purchasing lab supplies for any labs you’d like your student to complete.

When does the course begin?

You’ll have immediate access to begin the course whenever you would like as soon as you register!

Since this course is self-paced, you, the parent, have control over when your student begins the course. You can start as soon as you purchase, or wait a few weeks or months. Beginning the course is as easy as pressing a button. Once you begin the course for your student, they will have one year to access the course.

How long will I have access to the course?

You’ll have access to the course for one year from your start date—you choose the start date. There are 35 weekly lessons, so that should provide ample time for your student to complete the course. Once each video is available, your student can watch and rewatch it anytime they would like to throughout the duration of the course.

Are there any math prerequisites for this course?

Your student should have completed an algebra 1 course prior to taking this physics course. This is a rigorous math-based, physics course. 

Does my child have to view the course videos on specific days?

No, students can watch the lessons any time throughout the week. Once released, each video can be reviewed as many times as the student wants through the end of the course.

When should my student take this course? What grade?

We recommend students take this course in the 11th or 12 grade. Many parents choose to list this course as an honors course on their student’s high school transcript. There is a lot of math and the course moves at a fast pace to cover all of the material.

If you are looking for a class for younger students or students you’re not sure would be able to keep up with the pace of this course, we recommend checking out our Astronomy, Biology, or Earth Science courses. These courses are less advanced, but still appropriate for students seeking a science class for high school credit.

Can we use a different textbook for this course?

We believe parents are best equipped to determine their students’ educational needs. As a homeschool course, you’re welcome to choose whatever textbook you’d prefer for your student to use or omit textbook reading altogether if you’d prefer. For most students, anytime they can use multiple modes of learning it helps them retain information better.

After reviewing many, many textbooks we chose Conceptual Physics: The High School Physics Program because we believe this textbook does an excellent job of reinforcing the concepts students are learning in the lectures. We provide recommended reading for your student from this book. If you choose to use another textbook, you’ll need to be sure to assign students what you’d like them to read each week.

We have also created alternative reading schedules to accompany several other commonly used textbooks by homeschoolers. While we cannot vouch for every detail in these textbooks, the reading lists provided here generally overlap with what is covered in each of the lessons in the course.

In addition to our recommended textbook, Conceptual Physics, we currently have a reading list available for the following textbooks:

  • Introductory Physics, Novare (2nd edition)
  • Exploring Creation with Physics, Apologia (2nd edition)
  • Physics, Bob Jones (3rd edition)
  • Physics: The Foundational Science, Abeka (2nd edition)

Can I take this course if I live outside the United States?

Yes. This course is not specific to any particular location.

What additional books and supplies will I need for this course?

Students will need a number of different supplies to complete the labs and activities work. See the complete Discover Physics Lab Supply List.

It is highly recommended, though not required, that you purchase the textbook Conceptual Physics: The High School Physics Program. While this is our preferred textbook for the class, we’ve also included reading lists for several other textbooks, or you may omit textbook reading.

A PDF download of the Student Guidebook and Lab Guide are available as part of the course purchase.

How long do students have to complete individual lessons?

We recommend students plan to complete one lesson per week to finish the course at a typical school year. Once your student begins the course they will receive access to the next lesson within 1-2 hours of completing the current lesson. 

This allows you the flexibility to work ahead if needed to account for vacations or time off while still finishing the course in the typical timeframe.

Students will have a full calendar year to complete the course, so if they fall a week or two behind, they should still have plenty of time to complete the course.

What is your refund policy?

We offer a 100% money-back, happiness guarantee within 30 days of the course start date OR 6 months from purchase date (whichever is less). Simply email us and we’ll give you a full refund.

I see so many people put their kids back in school when they get to high school, because they lack the confidence to teach high school science…

…thanks to you guys, that is no longer an excuse. The videos in this course are top notch and I like the layout of the workbook with the opportunity it provides to learn notetaking skills. This is a challenging course, designed well, and taught from a biblical worldview. Thank you for working so hard to put these amazing courses together!

I had taken Experience Chemistry and Discover Physics was the next one on my list……

What I like most about the course is how Luke and Trisha explain the topics in new ways from one another as it helps me better understand the concepts. I’ve also appreciated the pre-made notes!

With physics, I was mostly concerned about labs and helping my student with homework…

I love that Discover Physics included all the teacher guides and helps so I could help out even when I didn’t know the exact answer myself. And I really appreciated that it was online and my student could work independently, so I could help my younger students who need more one-on-one time.

I so appreciate the perfect blend of faith and science in this course.

The Gilkersons have a logical, faith-based approach to creation. They don’t try to make it preachy like some Christian curricula, but maintain a high-standard for science academics. I love that my children have their faith and beliefs validated and enhanced while still getting high-quality academics.
