4401 AP Physics I
AP Physics 1 is a rigorous algebra-based, introductory college-level physics course. Students cultivate their understanding of physics through inquiry-based investigations as they explore these topics: kinematics; dynamics; circular motion and gravitation; energy; momentum; simple harmonic motion; torque and rotational motion; electric charge and electric force; DC circuits; and mechanical waves and sound. Students who take this course are expected to take the AP exam in May. Students who take AP Physics 1 should expect an accelerated pace and may require additional work or lab time outside of the regular class period. Prerequisite(s): Algebra II (or higher)/Concurrent Enrollment.
