# Ch 3: AP Physics C - Work, Energy, & Power: Homeschool Curriculum

The work, energy, and power unit of this AP Physics C 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 C Homeschool course will benefit any student who is trying to learn about work, energy, and power. There is no faster or easier way to learn about the significance of and relationships between work, energy, and power. Among those who would benefit are:

• Students who require an efficient, self-paced course of study to learn about work, types of energy, the mechanics of pulleys, and the mathematics of 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.
• Calculate the amount of work done by a variable force.
• Explore what energy is and its importance in the natural world.
• Understand the relationship between kinetic energy and potential energy.
• Learn about potential energy curves.
• Apply the work-energy theorem to various situations.
• Define mechanical energy and provide examples of it.
• Understand the basic mechanics of pulleys.
• Learn about situations where mechanical energy is conserved.
• Explore power and the mathematics behind it.
