PhysicsWOOT Testimonials

Since 2005, students preparing for the major high school Olympiads for math and science have chosen AoPS Online’s WOOT programs.

All the training I received in math from AoPS was absolutely crucial to helping me gain problem-solving skills in physics. At the Olympiad level, most problems can't be solved with only one concept—cracking them usually requires putting multiple concepts together, and the WOOT program really helped me develop this essential skill.

I've been taking AoPS classes ever since elementary school and they've really helped me develop strong problem-solving skills and keen intuition. Thanks to what I learned in calculus class, I was able to win a bronze medal the first time I took the USAPhO—even without any prior AP-level physics courses.
