Advanced Placement Physics will provide students with a college level course in physics and will prepare students to seek credit and/or appropriate placement in college physics courses. Topics will include but not be limited to: kinematics, Newton’s Laws of Motion, conservation laws in classical mechanics, torque, rotational equilibrium, gravitation, oscillation, kinetic theory and thermodynamics, electrostatics, electric currents, magnetism, waves and optics, and modern physics. Laboratory activities that include the use of the scientific method, measurement, laboratory apparatus, and safety are an integral part of this course.
