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.

"My children have been students of AoPS Academy for several years now. The staff is very good at identifying and encouraging high achieving students to attain their fullest potential. The instructors engage kids to solve tough math problems, and push them to think logically and come up with unique solutions, instead of following a memorized formula. I have witnessed many classes where students are given the opportunity to suggest multiple ways of approaching the same problem. This has really helped my children develop independent learning skills and a stronger foundation in mathematics. The staff truly care for each and every student’s growth. Every child gets an abundance of individual attention. Programs such as the math competition classes, MATHCOUNTS Trainer Contest, and Short Story Contest really challenge the kids to reach up to the next level. The language arts classes like Debate & Public Speaking and College Essay Writing provide a much higher quality of education for their students. Thank you so much for being such a valuable resource for my children. "
