What We Do

The Physics Project is the combined effort of Physicist Scott Pilzer and Math teacher Christy Stauffer.  For Physics, we offer two distinct sequences for home-school students or others looking for an alternative to traditional high school or college courses.  For math, we  offer math tutoring to students enrolled in community college courses.

Overview of Physics Courses

Great Ideas Sequence 

Re-create the theories of Special Relativity, General Relativity, and Quantum Mechanics starting  from basic principles.  This discussion-based sequence is designed for those looking to dive into the ideas behind incredible theories without the need of an algebra background.

The Whole Nine 

Study Physics and Mathematics as they were originally developed – as natural partners.  Learn Calculus, Mechanics, Electricity and Magnetism, Differential Forms, Modern Physics, and Linear Algebra together in one year-long sequence.  The Whole Nine is designed for students considering a career in physics, mathematics, or engineering or for those who simply want to learn physics from the ground up.  These courses are math-intensive and require an algebra background.
