AP Physics 1

Course Title: AP Physics 1

Course ID: 607383

Grade Level:11-12

UC/CSU a-g: area “d”

Prerequisite:  Students need to pass IM2

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.
