Curriculum and Levels
A-Star Winter Physics Camp consists of accelerated coverage of topics and special problem solving techniques.
The following topics will be covered during the camp:
- Newton’s Laws of motion
- Work and Energy
- Momentum and collisions
- Periodic Motion
There will be only one level that focuses on preparation for the F=ma test with intensive training.
F=ma exam is a multiple choice test which is administered in January. Please check American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT) Website for more information on F=ma test and USAPhO.
Knowledge of mathematics at the algebra 2 level (with some omissions) with trigonometry, including:
- Functions, Equations, and Graphs
- Linear Systems
- Quadratic Equations and Functions
- Polynomials and Polynomial Functions
- Radical Functions and Rational Exponents
- Exponential and Logarithmic Functions
- Quadratic Relations
- Trigonometric Functions
Please see the A-Star Physics Program page for more details.
