AP Physics 1/Lab               grades 11-12

Prerequisites - 90% average or better in Physics I (last year) or 90% average or better in Geometry and be concurrently taking Algebra II 

AP Physics I is the equivalent of a first-semester college course in algebra-based physics, but is designed to be taught over a full academic year to enable AP students to develop deep understanding of the content and to focus on applying their knowledge through inquiry labs. The full year also allows time for inclusion of physics content specified by state standards. The first part of the course covers Newtonian mechanics (including rotational dynamics and angular momentum); and work, energy, and power. The second part of the course covers mechanical waves and sound. It also introduces electric circuits. Emphasis on problem solving and inquiry-based laboratory investigations prepare students for the AP Physics I examination.
