Physics/Algebra II

The Physics course is taught by John Hamilton and the Algebra II course is taught by Benjamin Richards, who has a Ph.D. John Hamilton teaches engineering at the University of Arkansas, Ft. Smith branch. He also teaches 9th-grade science and 12th-grade physics. Benjamin Richards received a rigorous homeschool and private high school education and used AP exams to test out of his first year of college. He holds a degree in philosophy from Covenant College in Lookout Mountain, Georgia, and earned his M.S. and Ph.D. in optical sciences from the University of Arizona. He is an engineer in the R&D division of a photovoltaics company in Albuquerque, NM. He teaches 6th-9th grade mathematics.

Both of the courses contain college level problems/concepts and this is meant to help students prepare to take CLEP exams to quiz out of college. If your child is able to handle college level math/physics in these courses, then they will be able to pass the CLEP exams and not have to do college level math/physics in college. This is also an advantage for the parents because if their child is able to quiz out of college, then that will save the parents tens of thousands of dollars. I will not lie, these courses are tough, but if your child can pass these courses then they can take CLEP exams and never have to take math or physics in college.
