A.P. Physics 1: Algebra Based


AP Physics 1 is based on the College Board's Advanced Placement Standards. It is an algebra-based, college level introductory physics class. It covers Newtonian mechanics, work and energy, momentum, mechanical waves and sound, and simple circuits. 25% of the instructional time is spent on hand-on laboratory work, with an emphasis on inquiry-based investigations that provide students with opportunities to apply the science practices.

Prerequisite: Completed or concurrent enrollment in Algebra 2. Geometry. No prior classes in physics are required
