AP Physics 2/ Lab             Grade 12
Prerequisites:    90% average or better in Physics I (last year), 90% average or better in Algebra II and be concurrently taking Algebra II, or 85% average or better in AP Physics I
AP Physics 2: Algebra-based is the equivalent of a second-semester college course in algebra-based physics, but it 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 fluid mechanics; thermodynamics; and electricity and magnetism. The second part of the course covers optics and atomic and nuclear physics. Emphasis on problem solving and inquiry-based laboratory investigations prepare students for the AP Physics II examination.
