A.P. Physics

SCI 4471, 4472

Grade Levels:11, 12
Course Length:2 Semester
Credits:0.5 per semester
Prerequisites:Completed Algebra II/Trig and Conceptual Physics, also teacher recommendation

The A.P. Physics course is designed to be the equivalent of the general physics course usually taken during the first or second year in college. The student will study the theoretical aspects of physics which will include: vectors, kinematics, dynamics, circular motion and rotation, work and energy, momentum, elasticity and vibration, wave motion, sound, electricity, electric potential, electric potential and power, direct current circuits, electromagnetics, alternating current circuits, and electrical applications. The goal is for the students to position themselves to take the A.P. Physics exam. Enrollment limits may apply and students must maintain a B- average.
