You supply a few household items. Kit includes traditional lab supplies including Biconvex lens (50- and 150-mm fl).; Biconcave lens (150 mm fl), Concave Mirror (200 mm fl); Convex Mirror (200 mm fl); Prism; graduated cylinder (100 ml); Diffraction Grating; Digital kitchen scale; Iron filings; Galvanometer; Circuit switch; Single pulley (2); Solar cell 1V (500 mA); Spectroscope; Thermometers (2); Electric motor assembly kit; 3 Spring scales; Multimeter. and numerous other items including 100 g weight; Insulated wire 24-gauge, 2 Bulb holders; Red laser pointer; Single beam penlight; 2 Bar magnets; a Balloon; Rubber bands (10); marbles (2); different mass fishing weights (2); iron nails (2); Red cellophane; 2 AA batteries and battery holder; Flat mirror; Protractor; String (20 ft); metal washers (25); 6” Piece of wood 2” x 4”; Wooden board; eye hooks (2); 2 3.7 V bulbs; Color paddles (2); Metric rulers (3) and a Meter stick.
This kit goes along with the Master's Class High School Physics Curriculum. It includes most things you need to successfully complete each lab from the textbook. The items included in this kit are: A Balloon; 10 Rubber bands; 2 marbles; 2 fishing weights of different masses; 2 iron nails; Red cellophane; 2 AA batteries; Flat mirror; Biconvex lens 50 and 150 mm fl.; Biconcave lens, 150 mm fl.; Mirror, concave, 200 mm fl.; Mirror, convex, 200 mm fl.; Prism; Protractor; String 20 ft; 25 metal washers; 6” Piece of wood 2 x 4; Wooden board to use as a ramp; 2 eye hooks; 2 AA Battery holder; 2 3.7 V bulbs; 2 100 ml graduated cylinder; Diffraction grating; Digital kitchen scale; Iron filings; Galvanometer; 2 Bulb holders; Red laser pointer; Single beam penlight; 2 Bar magnet; Multimeter; Electric motor assembly kit; Color paddles; 3 Metric rulers; Meter stick; 3 Spring scales; Circuit switch; 2 Single pulley; Solar cell 1V, 500 mA; Spectroscope; 2 Thermometers; 100 g weight; Insulated wire 24 gauge
This college preparatory, upper-level Physics course covers the basic concepts and applications of modern physics, while testifying to the omnipotent and omnipresent nature of God. Topically students study the core concepts of physics, including speed, velocity, acceleration, force, vectors, gravity, thermodynamics, light, refraction, reflection, electric circuits, radioactivity, time and space, and more. While it has been created for homeschool families, and provides easy to manage lessons, a schedule, and teaching support, this is a serious study of science with a typical high school lab experience. Students should plan to spend approximately 5 hours per week in the course. Prerequisites include Algebra 1 and Chemistry.
The softcover illustrated Textbook provides 28 chapters and glossary. Each chapter (or lesson) will take one week to complete. Chapters offer objectives, illustrations to help explain concepts, textual readings and step-by-step laboratory assignments. The text is well-written and clearly explains key concepts without the longer narrative of some courses. Each chapter includes a lab component and begins with a list of required materials, followed by the introduction, purpose, and step-by-step instructions. The lab procedures are well organized with a similar format: Observe, Questions, Research/Hypothesis, Experiment, Analyze and Conclusion. Students can complete the labs in a separate lab notebook or use the lab report form in the Teacher Guide. Students successfully completing the course should qualify to receive a high school transcript credit for a Physics with Lab course.
The Teacher Guide provides everything you need to guide students through the lessons. Course objects, description, instructions for using the course and the corresponding lab experience, daily schedule, worksheets and laboratory reports, quizzes and exams, and the answer keys to worksheets, lab reports, quizzes, and exams. The Daily Schedule is divided into semesters, with assignments 5 days per week. Chapter readings, review lessons, labs, quizzes, and tests are all scheduled for your planning convenience. Parents may modify the plans as needed to meet their individual student needs. Lab reports include a list of required materials, introduction, purpose, and procedure which is identical to what is found in the Text. This information is centered on the left side of the page, with the right side offering blank space for any lab notes. Following the conclusion are several questions ranging from fill-in-the-blank to short answer that help students analyze the experiments. Sample lab reports are included for the first two labs to provide parent grading guidance. Labs require a few household items and traditional lab equipment. Required supplies that are not readily available include: 100 g weight, 100 ml graduated cylinder, (2) 3.7 V Bulbs, 2 AA Battery holders, 2 bar magnets, biconvex lenses (50 mm fl and 150 mm fl), biconcave lens (150 mm fl), bulb holder, circuit switch, color paddles, diffraction grating, digital scale, electric motor assembly kit, galvanometer, insulated wire, iron fillings, metric ruler (3), meter stick, concave mirror (200 mm focal length), convex mirror (200 mm focal length), multimeter, red laser pointer, single beam penlight, single pulley (2), solar cell 1V-500mA, spectroscope, spring scale (3), thermometers (2) and Stargazers Guide to the Night Sky (item #053254). We expect a lab kit to be available from Cornerstone Educational Supply in early Summer. Also scheduled weekly are a worksheet and quiz related to the readings. Worksheets include a variety of fill-in-the-blank and short answer questions, while quizzes are multiple choice and matching. Tests (8 total) cover 3-4 lessons and are taken on Fridays, with the beginning of the week scheduled study time. At a glance, this may seem overwhelming, however, the Teacher Guide format and organization make it user-friendly for homeschooling parents to use successfully. Student pages are reproducible for your immediate family. Set includes a Teacher Guide and Textbook. ~Deanne
