[Note: I started this post about a month ago. I have since come up with a solution and am just about ready to upload my Physics syllabus and online supplement links. Stay tuned... :) I'm posting this one anyway in case anyone is searching for Conceptual Physics resources.]
Here's my dilemma: We are due to study physics this year but physics is SOOO higher-math-heavy that one child would probably never be successful with it and would just be discouraged. I know of a few families that are using it for science AND math for next year but that's not really an option for us either if we are to stay on track for high school credits for Math. "Conceptual Physics" sounds like a great alternative but then I'm not sure if that class on their transcript will count in lieu of plain Physics. SO my current line of thinking is to choose Conceptual Physics and bridge the Math gap to make a full Physics but not so intense. Since it does not seem to exist it will take a lot of work on my part.
Here are some Physics curricula that I am perusing right now for next year:
This one looks really, really good:
VanCleave's Chemistry for Every Kid was an awesome bridge for youngest to do Chemistry with the olders. I plan on getting this regardless of our Physics spine:
