Exploring Creation with Physics - Full Course CD
Exploring Creation with Physics is a college-prep physics course that provides a detailed introduction to the methods and concepts of general physics, heavily emphasizing vector analysis. Designed for the student who has completed algebra and has had an introduction to the definitions of sine, cosine, and tangent, this text is ideal preparation for university-level physics.
A Wide Range of Topics
Exploring Creation with Physics will give your student a strong background in one-dimensional and two-dimensional motion, Newton’s laws and their application, gravity, work and energy, momentum, periodic motion, waves, optics, electrostatics, electrodynamics, electrical circuits, and magnetism.
About This Version of the Program
The Exploring Creation With Physics Full Course CD-Rom is a high school multimedia course. This version of the course has all of the information found in the print version, PLUS multimedia add-ons such as animations, videos (which do not replace lab experiments), narrations and audio pronunciation guides. The student reads the text from the screen and follows links to multimedia enhancements. It is not a supplement. It is a FULL COURSE! It runs in Internet Explorer, which is included on the CD.
The course looks just like a website, which makes it very familiar to most students. There is a navigation frame to the left which allows you to choose any module and any section of the course. The content of that portion of the course will then appear on the right-hand frame. There are animations and videos throughout the course, which make the material fun and interesting. Technical words are also pronounced for the student.
There are instructions for conducting hands-on experiments throughout the CD so that the student can have a true laboratory-based physics course. All of the materials needed for these experiments are common, household items. There are study guides and tests for every module in the course, and the answers are provided as well. Located on a separate CD that is included with the course, these materials can be printed out so that the student can use them and the parent/teacher can grade them.
