*Special Note: Registering for an AP or Honors course is meant to be a YEAR-LONG COMMITMENT. If you wish to drop an AP or Honors course, you will have to wait until one week after the semester begins.
AP Physics 2 is an algebra-based, introductory college-level physics course. Students cultivate their understanding of physics through inquiry-based investigations as they explore these topics: fluids; thermodynamics; electrical force, field, and potential; electric circuits; magnetism and electromagnetic induction; geometric and physical optics; and quantum, atomic, and nuclear physics. Students taking this course are expected to take the AP Test.
Prerequisite(s): Students need to have taken or be enrolled in Honor’s Math 2 or equivalent. AP Physics 1 or Physics is not required to take this course.
