Honors Physics

Thank you for registering! Dr. Wile is excited about his classes this year, and we hope you are as well. Please note that you will be getting a syllabus from Dr. Wile during the last week of August. It will lay out the first semester for you, indicating what you will need to do to prepare for each class as well as the assignments you will need to complete.

Before the last week of August, please make sure you have a copy of Exploring Creation with Physics 2nd Edition, by Dr. Jay L. Wile. That will be the text for your class. You will need the Solutions and Tests Guide that goes with the course, as it has the answers to the reviews that you will use to prepare for the tests.  Currently, the publisher is only selling softcover versions of the student book, and Dr. Wile considers it overpriced for a softcover book. Dr. Wile recommends buying a new Solutions and Tests Guide:

and then finding a used hardcover student text.  A used hardcover text will be less expensive and significantly more durable than the new softcover student text.  If you are willing to use a softcover student text, you can get both of the books you need here:

You will also be doing experiments in this course, but they use household items, so there is no kit to purchase.
