Homeschool Physics - An Apologia Success Story

Homeschool Physics - An Apologia Success Story
It happened again.  I just found Kevin reading his Apologia Physics book.  For fun.  He's a junior in engineering school, got straight A's last quarter in all his engineering classes.  And he reads his Apologia Physics book for fun.  He is a "little nervous" about next quarter because he is taking quantum mechanics, so he wanted to review Apologia again before the quarter starts.  Good investment, that book.  Apologia PhysicsQuote of the day:"Getting good grades is...

Is Finishing the Book Important for Homeschoolers?

Is Finishing the Book Important for Homeschoolers?
Many "accredited" programs will say that you only have to finish 3/4 of a textbook to say you finished a course.  I know there were times when my kids were in public school that they didn't even finish that much!  I'm sure you've noticed that for many textbooks, the first chapter (or two or three!) is simply review.  If you absolutely can't finish a book, or if you decide it's not worth the hassle, then I...
