Rowechen picture
Instructor: Rowechen Zhong

I’m teaching physics, so in an effort to make myself seem credible, let me give you guys my background. I have taken AP Physics C, which is the highest course available in high school, although it only brushes the surface of this vast and incredible subject. I began learning physics less than two years ago, roughly two weeks before the F=ma (a prestigious national physics competition). Two weeks later, I qualified for USAPhO, and then proceeded to earn a Bronze medal. Two weeks of self-paced study placed me in the top 200 physics students in the US. I then skipped out of AP Physics 1 and proceeded to take AP Physics C. That wasn’t challenging enough for me, so I also got a physics textbook, and learned more by googling random things. Anyhow, I qualified for the USAPhO again this year with my score of 23 out of 25 on the F=ma, well above the required 18.

Curriculum

Week 1- Dimensional Analysis -"I guessed the answer correctly"

Week 2- Forces - "If I push this thing, where does it go?"

Week 3- Torque and Angular Momentum - "If I spin this thing, where does it go?"

Week 4- Springs and Friction - "Boing Boing"

Chemistry

An introductory course covering information not mentioned in a typical science classroom, with a focus on chemical principles behind interesting phenomena, such as global warming, heat vision, and colored fire. Each class will consist of background information needed to understand a phenomenon, culminating in connecting the phenomenon itself with the background information. The class will be highly interactive and involve plenty of discussion. Having a calculator is highly recommended.
