AP Physics 1

Grades: 11-12

Credit: 1

Prerequisite: Successful completion of Geometry Co-requisite: Algebra II/Trigonometry

Description: AP Physics is an algebra-based course that is representative of topics covered in similar college physics courses, as determined by periodic surveys. This course could be taken by students with no previous high school experience in physics but who possess strong study skills required for college-level classes. The course covers the following general areas: Newtonian mechanics; work, energy, and power; mechanical waves, and sound. At least 25% of instructional time is dedicated to hands-on laboratory investigations. Schools could offer this course as a single or a double block class, with extended time for lab inquiry activities. Students who have taken this course may enroll in either AP Physics 2 or AP Physics C.
