If using DIVE/Saxon Physics as a high school course or to prepare for the AP Physics 1 or 2 exams, the minimum pre-requisite for Saxon Physics is to have completed or to be taking Precalculus concurrently. If you are planning to take one of the AP Physics C exams, the prerequisite is Calculus.
If your student is taking Algebra 2, our general recommendations are as follows:
- Take DIVE Chemistry
- If Chemistry has been completed, use DIVE eLearning Chemistry + our CLEP/AP Prep Chemistry course to prepare for the CLEP or AP Chemistry exam which earns up to 8 college credits.
- Take DIVE Earth Science as a high school course
