AP Physics 1 Course Description

College Physics, A Strategic Approach, 3e


AP Physics 1 is an algebra-based, introductory college-level physics course. Students cultivate their understanding of Physics through inquiry-based investigations as they explore topics such as kinematics, dynamics, momentum, work & energy, circular motion and rotational motion.  After the conclusion of the AP exam, students will continue their study of physics by exploring the topics of DC circuits & electromagnetism.

Evaluation will be based primarily on laboratory reports, class participation, homework, tests, and semester examinations.
