AP Physics 1

  • In this course, we will cover the following topics:

    Kinematics

    Dynamics

    Circular Motion and Gravitation

    Energy

    Momentum

    Simple Harmonic Motion

    Torque and Rotational Dynamics

    The goal of this course is not only to prepare you to take (and absolutely crush) the AP Physics 1 exam, but to get you comfortable with thinking like a scientist. You should feel challenged in this class, and you should come out of it with a better understanding of the world around you. We'll learn how to build labs, ask questions, analyze results, and use the knowledge that we're gaining to improve the world around us. 

    Supplies:

    Investigation notebook/binder with paper

    Notebook or binder for problems

    pencil

    calculator (as long as it has an EE or 10^ function, that's fine)
