Conceptual Physics – Honors – Online Course


Conceptual Physics Honors- engages students with analogies and imagery from real-world situations to build a strong conceptual understanding of physical principles ranging from classical mechanics to modern physics.


Conceptual Physics from Conceptual Academy – High School Level Science

Conceptual Physics Honors Version Textbook NOT included
Recommended for Grades 9+

This self-study physics course walks the student through Paul Hewitt’s favorite content, which, no surprise, is practically the entire book. To cover this material requires a relatively fast pace, which is why this course is designated as honors. In addition to video tutorials and reading assignments, eight unit exams are provided along with study aids, such as worksheets, simulations, and automated quizzes. Importantly, for each module, the author provides his personal comments and guidance regarding the material. A full suite of lab activities are now included with this course. Students are asked to document their experiences and observations in an accompanying field journal.  Grading rubrics  provided. To learn much more about this course, please review the Conceptual Physics teacher’s manual:

Review a pdf of  Physics text front matter  including its table of contents. Here are a few sample pages of discussing Newton’s second law of motion:  physics sample. These are actually physics pages from our very similar upper level  physics and physical science sample pages  textbook, which extends the approach of Conceptual Physics to include chemistry, Earth science, and astronomy.

Conceptual Academy has 11 high school and middle school level science courses.>
