AP Physics I is the equivalent of an introductory college level physics course. Students selecting this course are expected to have high levels of commitment, motivation, academic maturity, and perseverance. This course provides a rigorous and fast paced exploration of the relationship between matter and energy. Instruction focuses on kinematics; dynamics; circular motion and gravitation; energy; momentum; types of motion; electricity; and waves. Each of these topics is broken down and analyzed using experimental and mathematical techniques. Working knowledge of Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry and Trigonometry is expected. Students are expected to complete individual and collaborative assignments/projects and laboratory experiments.

Prerequisites

A grade of A- or higher in 245 Algebra II and be enrolled in 255 Trigonometry or a grade of C+ or higher in 250 Algebra II/Trig (H). Course satisfies a requirement for graduation.

*This course will not be available until the 2021-2022 school year.
