AP Physics C Mechanics

Grades: 11-12

Credit: 1

Prerequisite: Calculus or concurrent enrollment in Calculus

AP Physics C.

Description: Mechanics ordinarily forms the first part of a college sequence that serves as the foundation in physics for students interested in the physical sciences or engineering. Strong emphasis is placed on solving a variety of challenging problems, requiring some calculus that is presented to students during instruction. 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 are expected to take the Advanced Placement Physics C examination in May. With a satisfactory score, students may be eligible to receive some credit for college-level physics.
