Class Experience

Students will have a basic understanding of the basics of motion and forces.  This will prepare them for follow on courses in the realm of physics or other sciences.
I have taught chemistry and chemical engineering at the college level, and have a PhD in nuclear engineering.  I have been teaching all disciplines of science to home school elementary, middle and high school students for 12 years.  I know how to present science in a fun way to boost students interest in the subject. 
Each week a 1-2 page sheet of practice problems will be given for students to reinforce what they are learning in the class.  These problems should take no longer than an hour.  
Notes pages for each lesson and practice problems will be provided by the teacher.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
No live meetings, and no time outside of class.
All material for this course will be provided via video or .pdf file by the teacher.
