This homework tutorial series is guaranteed to assist College Physics or Advanced Placement Physics students in their study of the topics of Mechanics! Three experienced Advanced Placement (AP) Physics teachers explain how to complete homework problems in 8 different Mechanics topics. Each of the 85+ tutorials examines a different problem or problems in detail, complete with equations, diagrams, and hints for successful Physics problem solving. The homework tutorials in this series are sure to help Physics students complete their homework and better understand all Physics topics!
Applicable to AP Physics or Non-Calculus College Physics (and some lower level physics.)

The 16 lessons (85+ tutorials) in this series are divided into the following topics:
- AP Physics Topic 1: Basics of Physics
- AP Physics Topic 2: One-Dimensional Motion & Kinematics
- AP Physics Topic 3: Two-Dimensional Motion & Projectiles
- AP Physics Topic 4: Forces & Newton's Laws
- AP Physics Topic 5: Work & Energy
- AP Physics Topic 6: Momentum
- AP Physics Topic 7: Circular Motion & Gravity
- AP Physics Topic 8: Torque & Rotational Motion

Each lesson can also be purchased individually, or as part of the series:
- "AP Physics Homework Examples – Full Course" which includes 50 lessons (230 tutorials) in all topics of Physics: Mechanics, Fluids, and Thermal Physics, Electricity and Magnetism, Waves and Optics, and Modern Physics.

Barb Newitt, Brad Newitt, and Jeff Berndt are the AP Physics Teachers in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. They have led their own students to great success in their classrooms, and now they're ready to be your "online tutors" for AP or College Physics! Their homework example videos make the often difficult subject of Physics easier to understand and are a valuable resource to any Physics student. Most videos are designed for AP Physics or College Physics courses, but some will apply to lower levels of Physics as well.

This video moves at a pace that allows time for one to think conceptually as well as mathematically as the solution develops. One advantage is that I can pause the video at any point and see if I can finish the problem myself. Great learning tool, better than my textbook!
