Nebulas. Magnetism. Flight.
Noeo Physics 1 guides your kid through an exciting first exploration of the world of physics. We’ve packed your Noeo box with books, lesson plans, and experiments, all ready to go from day 1.
What's in Physics 1?
Comprehensive course of study
Physics 1 starts with the basics of Newton’s Laws of Motion and builds step-by-step to explain the complex movements of planets and asteroids. By the end, your kid will have a solid grounding in physics for deeper scientific study.
Everything in one box
Experiment kits and built-in lesson plans mean you can start exploring magnets, machines, and gravitational forces as soon as you open the box. Skip the Ready, Set, move straight to the Go!
Physics isn’t just about things bumping into other things—it’s about space shuttles and black holes and microwaves and Albert Einstein. We’ve selected every book in Physics 1 to make the world come alive.
Your kids will get their hands dirty in the real world every week by creating optical illusions, launching bottle rockets, mapping the solar system, and more. And with easy-to-read experiment guides, your kids can do detailed experiments practically on their own—while you get ahead on laundry.
Have multiple kids who want to discover the world of physics by building windmills, levers, pulleys and more? Perfect! Physics 1 is designed so kids across multiple grades can share books, experiments, and lab manuals, or have their own.
Hectic holiday weekend? No problem! With options for both a four-day and two-day per week schedule, Physics 1 enables you to adapt your curriculum to your calendar.
The All Yours Guarantee
Once your Noeo Box arrives, you have 60 days to open it up, read the books, mark up the guides, and do experiments. All we ask is that you use it.
If you don’t like your experience, send it right back for a full refund of your order—no questions asked.
Very well laid out with lessons that spark interest.
This is our third NOEO science program. We actually have science as part of our curriculum but my kids enjoy the activities and experiments so much we supplement with this. Great customer service as well. We were right in the middile of an experiment and the cars sent didn't work. I was going to start the hunt online to replace them but thought I'd see if NOEO would help me out. Not only did they help get us working pieces but we got them in just 2 days! That was great because we didn't have to have a gap in the lesson.
We are enjoying the experiments and the books - however, the pace of the books (often 1-3 pages at a time) was painfully slow. We have ended up reading the books in full a few times, instead of only reading a couple of pages at once.
I’m thrilled to hear my kids throwing around terms like “inertia” in proper context - that has proven to me this was the right curriculum for us!
We are enjoying science! Started with Biology and working our way through Chemistry and Physics next.
This curriculum provides a thoughtful design and structure that any home educator can modify to suit his/her needs. My daughters love the books that come with the curriculum; they certainly pique their interest and help to get them curious. What I find cumbersome are the 3 "manuals" --- Instructor's Guide, Experiment Guide, and Lab. There has to be a way to combine the Instructor's Guide and the Experiment Guide into one. Much of the content is repetitive (ex - answers to questions from the Lab Manual in both), and I think both are unnecessary. Additionally, the Lab Manual is ONLY in a Question & Answer format. NOEO (and I) could have saved money with a simple list of questions in the Instructor's Guide instead of an entire Lab Manual dedicated to this, and I could have orally asked my children the questions. My hope was that this manual would have been more creatively designed with suggestions to draw what my girls had seen, document data in a chart (such as for the experiments dealing with force) or some other interactive "extension" activities. As it is, I strongly recommend that they redesign the Lab Manual to BE MORE than what it is. Overall, you could do much worse than this curriculum, and the overall layout is helpful to structuring the year. However, there is room to improve.
