Physics 1 & 2 and AP Physics

  • PHYSICS (FALL)
    Offered: Semester Course. A general introduction to the fundamentals of
    time, space, forces, motion, wave, heat motion, energy, electricity,
    electromagnetism and atomic physics. Physics is essential for college study
    in engineering, chemistry and the medical fields. A calculator with
    trigonometric functions is essential. This course is accepted for college
    preparation in lab science.
    CREDIT: 0.5 TYPE: Core GRADE: 11-12
    PREREQUISITE: Earned grade of a “C” or better in Integrated Mathematics
    2 or Integrated Mathematics—Honors or Teacher recommendation &
    Administrative approval.
    COREQUISITES: If you take PHYSICS (FALL), you must also take PHYSICS
    (SPRING).
    FEES: $10.00

    AP PHYSICS 1 (FALL)
    Offered: Semester Course. The Honors section carries an Honor Point. AP
    Physics 1 provides students with an introductory experience in the concepts
    and methods of physical analysis, focused on classical mechanics and simple
    electrical circuits. Building the ability to reason qualitatively and
    quantitatively is a primary focus, with inquiry and investigation, modeling
    and diagramming, symbolic algebra, unit analysis, communication and
    argumentation, laboratory techniques, data analysis, and integration and
    application of concepts as emphasized skills. Students have the primary
    responsibility for building understanding, with the instructor as a resource
    and guide. Students will spend instructional time engaging with the
    textbook, online lecture videos, simulations, online discussions, hands-on
    labs (constituting 25% of instructional time), problem-solving screencasts,
    online homework problems, and tests/exams. This course includes a
    laboratory component designed to meet College Board standards and has
    been reviewed and approved by the College Board. Students are required to
    take the AP exam in May.
    CREDIT: 0.5 TYPE: Advanced Placement GRADE: 11-12
    PREREQUISITE: Biology, Chemistry.
    COREQUISITES: If you take AP PHYSICS 1 (FALL), you must also take AP
    PHYSICS 1 (SPRING).
    FEES: $15.00

    AP PHYSICS 2 (FALL)
    Offered: Semester Course. The Honors section carries an Honor Point. AP
    Physics 2 is an algebra-based, introductory college-level physics course that
    explores topics such as fluid statics and dynamics; thermodynamics with
    kinetic theory; PV diagrams and probability; electrostatics; electrical circuits
    with capacitors; magnetic fields; electromagnetism; physical and geometric
    optics; and quantum, atomic, and nuclear physics. Through inquiry-based
    learning, students will develop scientific critical thinking and reasoning skills.
    Students have the primary responsibility for building understanding, with the
    instructor as a resource and guide. Students will spend instructional time
    engaging with the textbook, online lecture videos, simulations, online
