Physics is the study of how the world around us works, how objects are related to each other through motion or non motion, and so much more. At Athena Preparatory, we make it a goal to engage students, to make education not only productive but lasting. In this way, we base our Physics and Physics 2 courses around the Advanced Placement (AP) Physics guidelines, but go further into the coursework, making each lesson impactful and forming students to be independent, scientific, analytical thinkers.


Topics we cover include:

Newtonian Mechanics

  • Kinematics
  • Laws of Motion
  • Work, Power, and Energy
  • Linear Momentum
  • Circular Motion
  • Oscillations
  • Gravity

Fluid Mechanics

Thermal Physics

  • Thermodynamics

Electricity and Magnetism

  • Electrostatics
  • Circuits
  • Fields
  • Electromagnetism

Waves

Optics

Nuclear Physics

  • Quantum Effects
  • Atomic Physics
