Another home run
We LOVE this series of science dvds with Wes. I use them at the beginning of the year to introduce and excite my student. Sometimes I follow the other assignment suggestions in the course, but we usually just the videos and take the short, written quiz. Then we move on to other courses to supplement the math aspects of Chemistry and Physics. The dvds don't necessarily have a lot of practice for that.

Love it!
Physics 101 is exactly what I was looking for! I love that it comes with quizzes and assignments that I can print out. The videos are so interesting that my 12 yr old asked if he can watched them with his high school sisters. My husband and I like to watch them too. They seem to be non denominational Christian which is what I was looking for. We plan to stick with the 101 Series all through high school.

Great Explanations!
My daughter enjoyed the lesson on Light so much that she requested the family watch it for Friday night movie night!!

Nice job!
It's a good jumping of point for a HS student if you don't need in depth physics credit. Great as a supplement or excellent for middle school classical instruction.

Physics in Plain English
I bought this DVD for my High School Students as a supplement to Apologia's Physics. We're finding it so interesting the whole family wants to watch it. It is High school level but it is so well worded with interesting graphics used to explain the concepts that even those of us who haven't had Physics before can understand it!

Love this series
We have used the Biology 101 and my daughter is currently using Chemistry 101 (My husband and I have already watched the entire Chemistry course videos just for fun). When I saw they had a Physics 101 I purchased it based on what we saw in Chemistry 101. I never took Chemistry or Physics in high school so the thought of my kids taking these classes as homeschoolers seemed a bit daunting. But this series does a fabulous job of taking the concepts that seem intimidating or complicated and presenting them in a way that makes sense to the whole family. Couldn't be happier with this entire series!

Physics 101 DVD set
We are well pleased with the Physics 101 program. My son, who is of an artistic bent, was struggling with a different physics program. Physics 101 was recommended to us, so we bought it partway into our school year. My son says the videos are engaging, and he has advanced at a good pace to make up for lost time. He is now enjoying physics! Although his dad goes over tests with him, he has been able to be very independent with his daily work in this program. A win for all of us!

We love Physics 101 DVD
Our family LOVES this series. We also used Biology 101 and Chemistry 101. As a homeschool Mom, having taught 13 years, I would say this series meets more of my criteria than any other curriculum I have ever used. My 2 high schoolers, who tend to be on the creative rather than scientific end of the spectrum, LOVE this series and beg to watch it. The instructor is knowledgeable and engaging, the visuals and examples are creative and memorable and humor is interspersed throughout. But what I really love about this series is that, more than being taught from a Christian worldview, it goes beyond to show how the science principles being taught illustrate the character and ways of our Creator God. The result is that we are all understanding the personality and identity of our amazing God better and our relationship with God is deepening as a result of this course....and that is what it is all about!!

We have used Biology 101 and Chemistry 101 also by Frank Sherwin and they worked well for our family. This was requested by my 15 year old daughter.
Tina F on Aug 28, 2018
We used Chemistry 101 last year and loved it. The videos are interesting, informative, and well done. And the reading, writing assignments, and experiments really help to reinforce the material covered in the videos. Would definitely recommend.
Tabitha K on Aug 26, 2018
We used Biology 101 last year for 10th grade. My daughter liked it and wanted to continue the 101 Series with DVD for 11th.
Kathleen A on Aug 13, 2018
My friend has the Biology 101 and it feels like we can understand this and use it with ease. The visual side is like you are there, he's talking to you.

I am homeschooling but also working full time. The videos may help my child be more independent.

This DVD course will be used to cover Physics concepts for my student's course work.

Fun & easy course.

This came highly recommended by scientists whom we know.

I can hear my slightly cynical teen aged son LAUGHING during science when he's watching this series. Enough said.

Good reviews and will use with exploring the World of Physics book

I like the other science 101 DVDs
User on Aug 26, 2017
We had used Chemistry 101 and found it very informative and engaging. It is not obviously for a child who is a college bound science or engineering student. But it is wonderful for my literature and arts mind child who needs a well rounded education.
Tamara H on Aug 23, 2017
I have seen the Chemistry 101, and it was absolutely wonderful! He makes science come alive and be understandable.
Christy B on Aug 14, 2017

My high school age children have used Biology 101 and Chemistry 101. Not only did they learn much, but they also enjoyed the classes.Time for Physics!

we have used the Biology 101 and currently using the Chemistry 101 and been very pleased with the series! The presenter does a great job in explaining the concepts and using wonderful illustrations that make it understandable. Can't wait to see what they do with Physics (a subject that makes no sense to me)

We own the other two DVDs in the set; they are great!

We chose this because we loved the biology and chemistry 101. We are hoping for a Astronomy 101. Hint Hint!

Science course for this year for my 10th grader. was recommended by word of mouth.
Elizabeth B on Jul 25, 2016
We were impressed with the high quality of Wes Olson's Chemistry 101 DVD course, so we decided to purchase Physics 101 also. We plan to use these two courses (in part -- videos, viewing notes, quizzes) as the main spine for our middle school Physical Science for this upcoming year (6th grade), and then slow down the pace to re-view the video lessons and complete all the remaining assignments for Chemistry (7th grade) and Physics (8th grade).
Beth B on Jul 18, 2016
If I had to choose just one science resource, these videos would be it. Every series Wes Olsen produces is professional, informative, and memorable. All of my children from the 19-year old down to the 4-year olds sit and watch these simply for enjoyment. These are worth every penny and will add greatly to any science program you are using.
Karen B on Jul 18, 2016
Buying this for my son who loves science.

Looking for another way to teach physics and was suggested by RRC employee.

I love this series. It is excellent. So excited for this new release.
Melissa T on Jun 9, 2016
My son enjoyed the teaching of Wes Olson in the Chemistry 101 DVD series; it was presented well in an interesting, easily understandable way. I'm confident the Physics 101 DVD program will keep my son engaged as he continues studying science.
Denise N on May 24, 2016
I have Biology 101 and Chemistry 101. If this series is as engaging as they are, I know our whole family will enjoy it. I learned more of Chemistry by watching the series than I ever did in Chemistry class! They are A #1 productions.

Is this DVD enough to prepare for HS level testing?
User on May 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No, IMO. Its very easy. More like a junior high school level.
