Version: CD-ROM.

Pre-requisite: Pre-Calculus (DIVE Advanced Math) completed, or taking concurrently

AP Physics exams: DIVE/Saxon Physics + CLEP Professor for AP Physics teaches everything required for the AP Physics 1& 2 exams as well as 70% of the AP Physics C exams.


AP Physics 1 & 2 (Algebra-based exams)
To prepare for the AP Physics 1 & 2 exams, we recommend you complete the DIVE/Saxon Physics course by mid-March to early April to allow time to prepare specifically for the exam using our CLEP Professor for AP Physics course. This is a three to six week software course that provides specific preparation for the AP Physics exam.


AP Physics C (Calculus-based exams)
DIVE/Saxon + CLEP Professor for AP Physics teaches about 70% of the material presented on the AP Physics C exams. To prepare for the AP Physics C exams, complete the DIVE/Saxon Physics course, the CLEP Professor for AP Physics, and a test prep book for the AP Physics C exam you plan to take.


How to Register
The AP Physics test is given on one day at the beginning of May. Contact the College Board in the fall to find out which high schools near you are offering the exam. Then contact the school in the fall to register. Anyone can take an AP exam as long as you have registered and have a government issued picture ID.

Students using DIVE Physics will become skilled at working with the scientific method, become familiar with the use of technology in science, and develop their lab skills above and beyond most of their peers. Most importantly, students will have a better understanding and appreciation for the rich Christian heritage that exists in science, and will better understand the importance of studying His word and His works as they seek to become good rulers of His creation.  



DIVE Physics teaches every lesson in the Saxon Physics curriculum Typically completed in 11th or 12th grade, DIVE Physics is a full-year course teaching concepts found in a typical high school AP physics course, preparing students for the AP Physics exam. Topics include but are not limited to Science and Christianity, Newton’s laws, speed and velocity, torque, impulse/momentum, relativity theory, work, gases and thermodynamics, potential and kinetic energy, electricity and magnetism, circuit theory and Ohm’s law, and reflection and refraction. DIVE Physics contains 100 lectures, one for each lesson in the Saxon Physics textbook. CLICK HERE TO SEE TABLE OF CONTENTS.


There are 23 video labs, most of which are taught using the scientific method. Students formulate a hypothesis, perform the experiment, and then use the results to determine whether their hypothesis was correct. The majority of DIVE Physics labs use equipment that is too cost-prohibitive for home use, and therefore a supply list is not currently available for the labs. A printable workbook is included on the DIVE CD containing all lab activities. Scroll down to view a sample.  
Quarterly exams are an integral part of DIVE Physics, as they promote study habits similar to what a student should expect in college, where exams are given infrequently, yet cover several weeks of material. Students prepare for the quarterly exams by studying their weekly Saxon tests. If they understand the material on the Saxon weekly tests, then the quarterly exams are not difficult. A grade calculator is also provided. Parents simply enter homework, lab, Saxon weekly test and DIVE quarterly exam grades into the calculator, and it automatically calculates the student’s overall grade.
Upon completion of DIVE Physics, students who want to go a step further can also purchase the CLEP Professor course to prepare for the AP Physics 1 and 2 Exams (The College Board does not offer a CLEP Physics exam). CLEP Professor is designed to bridge the gap between high school science and college credit. By using DIVE PHYSICS, the bridge becomes much shorter, and with a little extra study with our CLEP Professor, the student can attempt the AP Physics 1 and 2 exams, saving themselves both time and money on future college coursework.
The AP Physics 1 and 2 were previously known as the AP Physics "B" exam, but has now been broken into two separate exams. The College Board website says you can use the same books you used for Physics B to prepare for Physics 1 and 2.

    Thank you for making physics understandable.

  2. AP Physics Results

    Posted by Jennifer on 26th Jul 2015

    Hello! We wanted to share with you the joy we had when opening the results of my son's AP Physics B Exam. He received a four out of a possible five. His junior year was a yearof diligent study for him. The only materials he used were your Saxon+ DIVE + CLEP Professor Physics. Thank you for your wonderful course!

    He is currently applying to colleges (U. of Michigan, Iowa State,
    Texas A&M, and also for an appointment to the United States Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point).

    He will continue his studies in Calculus and Physics as you
    recommended below for his upcoming Senior year. Thanks again!

    To God be the Glory!

  3. Good content, clumsy execution

    Posted by Ray on 8th Oct 2013

    Have been through about 5 lessons. Content is good, but execution is clumsy: when I insert the DVD into my iMac there is no autoloader that launches the content. Same on a Windows laptop. But the lessons seem well done--instructor gives clear explanations and draws helpful diagrams. (I had originally ordered this as an online course but was later told it is not available, so went with the DVD instead.)

    Update: The DIVE course is now available as a digital download for use on all Mac and Windows XP and later.
