AP Physics Videos

Physics I is a first-year physics course which introduces students to classical mechanics. This course has a hands-on focus, and approaches mechanics through take-home experiments. Topics include: kinematics, Newton's laws of motion, universal gravitation, statics, conservation laws, energy, work, momentum, and special relativity.

Physics II is the second semester of introductory physics. The focus is on electricity and magnetism.

MIT OCW has selected relevant material from MIT's introductory physics courses to support students as they study for the AP Physics curriculum. The videos are extremely helpful for beginner level understanding of Physics.

How to win Earth Science Olympiad?

I was talking to Sohaima (the first Silver Medal winner from Bangladesh at the International Earth Science Olympiad) few months back and did ask her how she prepared for the National Earth Olympiad and International Earth Science Olympiad. She shared some important secrets. I hope this secret will help you to win a better position at National Earth Olympiad.

The suggested book for national earth olympiad is High School Earth Science. However the book doesn't offer an in-depth knowledge of the field and somewhat banal.'s Earth Science 101 course offers an interactive introduction to Earth Science (Geology, Astronomy, Meteorology, and Oceanography). You'll learn almost everything you need to know for earth science olympiad and it'll be a gratifying experience for you. The course has a 5 days free trial. After 5 days, you've to pay for it. So if you are concerned about money, I'd suggest to register for the course when you'll have enough time in hand and you'll make the best use of it. 

Course Link: Earth Science 101.

After finishing the course, if you don't feel satisfied (which I believe won't be the case for those who went through the course materials by heart), you can get more study materials here.

Best Wishes!
