A.P. Physics C: Mechanics


This course will take students through a second year of physics and prepare them to take the AP Physics C examination. Students will investigate topics in kinematics, Newton's laws, work, energy, power, momentum, circular motion, oscillatory motion, electricity, and magnetism. Problem solving will emphasize the use of calculus. A "hands-on" lab approach will be incorporated to introduce students to laboratory techniques necessary to succeed at the collegiate level. Special projects are included to give students direction over their own study of physics.

Prerequisite: "C" or better or concurrent enrollment in Calculus and consultation with current science teacher
