AP Physics 1

Description:

AP® Physics 1 is an algebra-based course in general physics that covers topics outlined by the College Board and also mirrors an introductory level university physics course.

The content for the course is based on six Big Ideas that bring together the fundamental science principles and theories of general physics. These big ideas are intended to encourage students to think about physics concepts as interconnected pieces of a puzzle. The solution to the puzzle is how the real world around them actually works. The students will participate in inquiry-based explorations of these topics to gain a more conceptual understanding of these physics concepts. Students will spend less of their time in traditional formula-based learning and more of their effort will be directed to developing critical thinking and reasoning skills.

The specific topics covered in this course are:
SEMESTER 1
Kinematics
Dynamics
Circular Motion and Gravity
Work and Energy

SEMESTER 2
Momentum
Forces and Oscillation
Rotational Motion
Waves and Sound
Electrostatics
Electric Current

Students will progress through the concepts by means of reading text, discussing with classmates, performing exploratory and inquiry-driven labs, solving word and numerical problems, and completing projects.  Student evaluation is done through quizzes, lab reports, student discussions, projects, and unit exams.

Learning Targets:

T1: Generate and evaluate evidence and explanations according to accepted scientific practices.
T2: Know, use, and interpret scientific explanations of the natural world.
T3: Understand the development and evolution of scientific knowledge.
