How We Use Apologia Physics in Our Homeschool
This homeschooling moment brought to you earlier by @hodgepodgedad ❤️ He was getting a high school status update from these two. (Last semester for our senior son!) Back to school in the morning 📚😊 Our high school curriculum choices here or at the link in profile https://www.hodgepodge.me/high-school-homeschool-curriculum-choices/ #HeIsTheBest #homeschoolperks #homeschoolinghighschool #teachingtextbooks #apologiascience #PhysicsVideoCourse #ApologiaAcademy #HodgepodgeHomeschool #HomeschoolLooksLikeThis #HomeschoolMom #homeschoollife #HodgepodgeSeniorYear
My high schooler reads the assignment then watches the accompanying recorded Apologia Online Module. He then answers the ‘On Your Own’ questions. After completing a module, my high schooler completes the accompanying test. We usually plan these for a Friday afternoon. More in Homeschooling High School Learning Styles.
Apologia Online Academy has taken the “eeeek!” out of high school science (for me as the homeschool teacher) and has met my senior’s science needs.

I will actually be teaching physics, but need a good review. I was looking at onlineolympiad with Dr. Lin Leo Yu teaching AP physics. Just wondered if you knew anything about this? I actually have the Apologia Physics book, because my children used it for physics.
Any help you can offer would be appreciated.
Thanks for your comment. I am not familiar with the resource you have mentioned. But my son and I really enjoyed the Apologia online physics course and recommend it!
