Introduction to Mechanics

Academic Year Mathematics

Taking a hands-on, experimental approach, students study the fundamentals of Newtonian mechanics: motion, forces and energy. Students discover fundamental physical relationships by designing experiments, plotting the data, analyzing the results, and using the insights gained to build the mathematical models we know collectively as mechanics. These mathematical models are then deployed to solve challenging problems and to extend students' understanding of physical and mathematical principles. Students will come away from the course with skills in critical thinking and scientific reasoning, and will be able to recognize and apply physics in their everyday, real-world experiences.

This course is designed for students in grades 6 through 9.

"Our homeschooled son is extremely gifted in math and science.  He really feels at home at AoPS Academy.  Through coaching and personal attention at AoPS, he achieved a 5 in AP Calculus at 11 years old and a 4 in AP Statistics at 12.  He also achieved an 800 on SAT II math at 12 years old.  Our son feels very comfortable in the atmosphere of AoPS, where being gifted in math is not looked down on, but treated with respect.  He has truly found his peers at AoPS Academy. 

AoPS Academy allows my son to be himself, learn that there are other kids well advanced in math, and gives him the confidence to know that it is OK to be great in math, and that other people will respect and value his ability."
