Saxon Physics was written with both average and gifted students in mind. The subject is taught at an introductory level, allowing the average high school student to grasp the concepts of Newton’s laws, statics, dynamics, thermodynamics, optics, DC circuits, waves, electromagnetics, and special relativity. The topics are covered to a depth appropriate for college students majoring in non-engineering disciplines. Consequently, gifted students who use this book will have great success with the Advanced Placement Physics examination, and average students who are willing to do the homework will also be able to pass the examination. This book does not require that the teacher have a background in physics. Anyone who has taught second year algebra, especially Saxon’s Algebra 2, can teach this book successfully.
