Interactive Menus for quicker learning
Mastering Physics considers Physics as one of the three basic natural sciences.
It's considered one of the most fun topics but also scares both teachers and students.
By concentrating on the key concepts and presenting the material in an intriguing manner, Physics students are able to gain confidence in themselves and their ability to master this important science.
Teachers can present the topic with a minimum of self-study and in fact can learn with the student if necessary. Home school instructors lacking a natural science background can feel confident in the accuracy and thoroughness of the SDS Physics materials.
Likewise, home schooled students, who might not have access to the Physics laboratory, can benefit from a visual learning experience beyond the textbook.

The Basics: What is physics? Find out as Mastering Physics introduces you to the basics, including scientific notation, numbers and units, scalars and vectors and includes the review of the mathematics necessary for the study of Physics.
Units of measure
Trigonometric functions; sine, cosine, tangent
Vectors and Velocity:
Mastering Physics introduces the Physics students to vectors and one-dimensional kinematics, including displacement, velocity, and acceleration.
Vector multiplication: dot-product, cross-product
Displacement and velocity
Kinematics: Mastering Physics discuss two-dimensional kinematics, motion in a plane; with a look at the role the Big G—gravity lays in projectile motion. Then we'll show you some handy equations for figuring out projectile motion and uniform circular motion.
Projectile motion in a gravitational field
Uniform circular motion
Circular Motion and Momentum:
Things really get spinning with a discussion of accelerated circular motion. Then the Mastering Physics cover rotational motion, which is the rotation of objects like planets. Along the way you'll learn about radical radians and other science lingo. Finally, we'll look at linear momentum and its companion, the Principle of Conservation of Linear Momentum
Accelerated circular motion
Linear and angular momentum
The Three Laws of Motion:
Mastering Physics discusses the three laws of motion, courtesy of Sir Isaac Newton. Then we'll roll up our sleeves as we look at work and energy.
Newton's laws of motion
Force, mass, and inertia
Conservation of energy
Opposing and equal forces
Static and kinetic friction
Work and Energy: Mastering Physics roll up their sleeves and take a look at what work means in physics. You'll find out how to find an object's kinetic energy, the energy it has because of its motion. The mystery of attraction will be revealed as we cover the Law of Universal Gravitation. Finally, we'll answer that burning question: how much does a pizza weigh on the sun
Kinetic and potential energy
Work-kinetic energy principle
Law of universal gravitation
Planetary Motion and Harmonic Motion:
We'll take a quick trip into space with the Mastering Series to learn Kepler's Laws of Planetary Motion. Next, you'll find out about simple harmonic motion, a related law called Hooke's Law, and pendulums. Before we wave "goodbye," you'll also get an introduction to waves
Amplitude and frequency
Hooke's spring law
Kepler's planetary motion laws
Heat: Mastering Physics start off with the concept of heat transfer - you'll find out how much energy it takes to raise the temperature of a substance. Next, we'll discuss changes of state. How much heat does it take to change ice to water, or solid silver to a gas.
Heat as energy
Latent heats of fusion and vaporization
Thermodynamics: Mastering Physics starts with the first law of thermodynamics. Then, naturally, the second law of thermodynamics. Next, we'll look at heat engines, an application of the second law. The last topic we'll cover is entropy, the measure of disorder of a system
