AP Physics

  • Advanced Placement Physics is more rigorous than the standard physics course and the pace of the course is accelerated. Most of the topics covered are the same as the standard physics course with the addition of rotational dynamics, conservation of angular momentum and several others.  The problems and labs are more challenging and require the application of advanced mathematics and creative problem solving skills. This course is recommended for students who plan to pursue a science related field at a four-year college or university and will prepare them to take the Advanced Placement Physics exam in May.
