# Ch 4: AP Physics 1 Work, Energy, & Power: Homeschool Curriculum

The work, energy, and power unit of this AP Physics 1 Homeschool course is designed to help homeschooled students learn about the relationships between work, energy, and power. 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 the relationships between work, energy, and power. There is no faster or easier way to learn about work, energy, and power. Among those who would benefit are:

• Students who require an efficient, self-paced course of study to learn about characteristics of work, types of energy, and how to calculate power.
• 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 work, energy, and power unit exam confirm understanding or identify any topics that require review.

## Work, Energy, and Power Unit Objectives:

• Identify the characteristics of work.
• Determine how much work is done by a variable force.
