Main goal: After taking this course, students will be ready to solve more than a half of the problems at the annual F = ma competition in January, which is often enough to qualify to the next level and is considered equivalent to passing the AIME math competition.
To experience the spirit of our classes, please see the recent recording of our "open house" webinar in which we talked about the rules of the F=ma exam, Einstein's discoveries of 1905, and a number of problems from a recent F=ma exam: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lng7_rtpgq0
|Who||Students in grades 10th - 11th, occasional 9th grader, self-motivated|
Full payment required at the time of registration. No checks accepted.
|Course Size||Maximum 15 students|
7:00pm - 8:00pm CST, Saturdays - ONLINE Q&A SESSIONS
January: 6, 20, 27
February: 3, 10, 17, 24
March: 3, 24, 31
April: 7, 14
To maximize learning, students are strongly encouraged to attend the weekly online Q&A session. However, attendance is not a mandatory requirement to enroll in the course.
|Additional Benefits||This course will go a long way to prepare the kids for at least a part of the AP Physics tests. Again, our primary goal is to prepare the kids for physics competitions; AP readiness is a side benefit.|
|Expected Prior Knowledge||Level 1 course at the Academy or at least Pre-AP high school physics. Very strong math skills are needed at the level of Precalculus.|
