Physics is the study of matter at all scales from the smallest (strings) to the largest (cosmos). It is of primary importance for all STEM students to learn the concepts presented in this field of Science. It is the basis for the advancement of all state-of-the-art technologies we are using today. It provides the required knowledge to engineers to develop their designs and to be creative. And, it is, of course, the ultimate key for physicists themselves to better understand the Nature and to unravel the yet not discovered secrets of the Universe and to go beyond.

Ashlar STEM Academy offers ever growing and enriching opportunities for high school students to improve their skills on and understand the very concepts of this leading field of science. Holding PhD degrees and having over 20 years of teaching experience, Ashlar STEM Academy Instructors are ready to answer your questions and help you master your skills in Physics.

Subject Practice tests (Mechanics, Electricity and Magnetism, Optics, Fluid Mechanics, ...), Test Preparation Practice Tests (AP Physics 1, AP Physics 2, AP Physics C, ...), Sample Problems Library, In-person tutoring services (Chicago and suburbs only) are proudly offered by Ashlar STEM Academy.

Branches of Physics

Students who would like to pursue their careers in the field of Physics will have a good grasp of ideas in every branch of Physics presented below. Based on the interest of the student, a specific field of expertise can be chosen during the course of studies. In today's world, most of the physicists are actually focusing their researches on interdisciplinary fields such as Astrophysics, Biophysics, Optical Engineering, Nuclear Engineering, Computer Science, ... etc.

Classical Mechanics

Motion of system of particles under the influence of force described in Newtonian Physics is studied.

AP® Physics Practice Tests

Ashlar STEM Academy also offers test preparation tools for the AP® Physics Exams each year. These online practice tests will help students get well-equipped on topics covered throughout AP® Physics 1, AP® Physics 2, AP® Physics C Mechanics and AP® Physics C E&M Classes.

In Chicago area, in-person tutoring sessions, crash courses and boot camp activities are also offered by Ashlar STEM Academy throughout the year.

AP® is a registered trademark owned by College Board, which was not involved in the production of Ashlar STEM's online tests, and does not endorse, them.

Subject Practice Tests

Ashlar STEM Academy Instructors provide high school students with a chance to increase their confidence, improve their grades and have a better understanding of the concepts taught in Physics. The practice tests available on this page are prepared by Ashlar STEM Academy instructors. Updates and New Tests will be announced on Ashlar STEM social media channels (Facebook).

Each test is labelled based on its difficulty level, where "V1" refers to the easiest. The V1 and V2 practice tests are algebra based and the rest are all calculus based.
