Physics Competition Prep Courses

2021-22 Physics Olympiad Preparation Courses

To prepare for the Physics Olympiad exams (F=ma and USAPhO) in Spring 2022, 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. Registration available below.
  • 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. Registration TBD based on interest.
  • 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 TBD based on interest.

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

These preparation courses are meant for students who have already learned physics concepts in a course such as Physics Fundamentals or AP Physics. 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 AP Physics. , 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 Tuesdays 4:00-5:00 PM Pacific (7:00-8:00 PM Eastern), starting December 14th. The 8 live sessions will be held: 12/14, 12/21, 12/28, 1/4, 1/11, 1/18, 1/25, 2/1.

Note: The first live session will be two hours on 12/14 from 4-6 PM Pacific Time. All other weeks will include a recorded video lecture to watch before the live session.

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