Course ID: 607383
 
Open to grades: 10 - 12
 
UC/CSU eligibility: This course is approved for “D” Lab Science credit
 
Prerequisites: Grade of B or better in CCIM2 and CCIM3
 
AP Physics I will cover the concepts and skills students will need to demonstrate in order to earn college credit by taking and passing the AP Physics I Exam in May. The course covers the classic physics topics of motion (including rotation), forces, momentum, work, energy and power. Waves and sound are also covered and electric circuits are introduced. Students will also experience hands-on, computer-based labs using “live” sensors to collect and analyze data to gather evidence to support specific claims. Students will also design, build, use and evaluate projects to solve real-life problems.
