F=ma Problem SeriesThis course will prepare you to take the F=ma exam, the first test in a series of contests that determines the members of the US team for the International Physics Olympiad. You'll learn the classical mechanics you need for the F=ma exam as we solve and analyze problems taken from past exams. We'll also cover strategies for taking the test, and you'll get to take a practice F=ma test of brand-new problems.

Who Should Take?
This course is designed for high school students who have already learned the basics of Newtonian mechanics—specifically, Newton's laws, Newtonian gravity, and forces like friction and tension. If you've already passed the F=ma exam and are looking toward USAPhO, you'll want to take our PhysicsWOOT course instead.
