# Ch 1: AP Physics 1 Vectors: Homeschool Curriculum

The vectors unit of this AP Physics 1 Homeschool course is designed to help homeschooled students learn about vector types and operations. Parents can use the short videos to introduce topics, break up lessons and keep students engaged.

## Who's it for?

This unit of our AP Physics 1 Homeschool course will benefit any student who is trying to learn about vector types and concepts. There is no faster or easier way to learn about vectors. Among those who would benefit are:

• Students who require an efficient, self-paced course of study to learn about vector characteristics, operations, components and resultants.
• Homeschool parents looking to spend less time preparing lessons and more time teaching.
• Homeschool parents who need a physics curriculum that appeals to multiple learning types (visual or auditory).
• Gifted students and students with learning differences.

## How it works:

• Students watch a short, fun video lesson that covers a specific unit topic.
• Students and parents can refer to the video transcripts to reinforce learning.
• Short quizzes and a vectors unit exam confirm understanding or identify any topics that require review.

## Vectors Unit Objectives:

• Identify the types of vectors and their characteristics.
• Learn to use the geometric method of adding vectors.
• Calculate the resultants of vectors.
• Perform scalar multiplication of vectors.
• Use the head-to-tail method to subtract vectors.
• Learn how to find standard basis vectors.
• Discover how to use components to perform vector operations.
• Determine the magnitude of a vector in component form.
• Understand how to find the direction of a vector in component form.
• Learn to find vector resolution by splitting vectors.
