Physics Competition Prep Courses

2019-20 Physics Olympiad Preparation Courses

To prepare for the Physics Olympiad exams (F=ma and USAPhO) in Spring 2020, three 8-week sessions are planned this school year.

  • 8 Week Prep Course for the F=ma Exam (Session 1): Reviewing topics and covering problem solving skills needed for the F=ma exam
  • 8 Week Prep Course for Mechanics and E+M on the USAPhO (Session 2): Reviewing topics and covering problem solving skills in mechanics and electricity and magnetism for the USAPhO exam
  • 8 Week Prep Course for the USAPhO (Session 3): Reviewing additional topics in physics covered on the USAPhO exam as well as final practice before the exam.

Registration (available below) for a single term is \$680. Each session will meet Wednesdays from 4:30-6:30 PM Pacific (7:30-9:30 PM Eastern)

  • Session 1: Starts September 25th and finishes November 20th (no class Oct 16th).

How do these courses relate to Areteem's Physics Fundamentals and Physics Challenge II courses?

These preparation courses are meant for students who have already learned physics concepts in a course such as Physics Fundamentals or Physics Challenge II. While some fundamental knowledge will be reviewed, it is recommended that students who have not taken yet a physics course enroll in either Physics Fundamentals or Physics Challenge II. For more information on the topics covered in Physics Fundamentals and Physics Challenge II, click the links below:

This online prep course will review the fundamental knowledge and cover problem solving skills needed to excel on this year's F=ma exam. Students will learn the tricks needed to solve common problems efficiency, and practice with previous physics contest problems, taken from F=ma, Physics Bowl, Physics Olympiad, and more.

It will meet Wednesdays 4:30-6:30 PM Pacific (7:30-9:30 PM Eastern), starting September 25th, 2019 and finishing November 20th. All meetings will be held online. (There is no meeting Oct. 16th.)

Tuition for the course is \$680 and includes all 8 live classes (with recordings for review) as well as homework assignments each week.

This workshop is for students preparing for this year's Physics Bowl Competition. The workshop will be held online as four 2-hour sessions.

Sessions will be focused on group problems solving of past problems with the instructor, a 2018 US Physics Team member and top Physics Bowl scorer.
