AP Physics 1+ This course provides a systematic introduction to foundational physics; including translational and rotational mechanics, electrostatics, and elementary circuitry. Further topics will be introduced as time allows and may include: fluids, heat and thermodynamics, light and optics, sound, electromagnetism, quantum theory, nuclear physics, etc.
Emphasis is on the development of conceptual understanding and problem-solving ability using algebra and trigonometry. Frequent laboratory experiences are coordinated with classroom work. Evaluation is based on tests, homework, and laboratory reports.
Students are encouraged to use this course as preparation for the Advanced Placement Physics 1 Exam.
