     2020-2021 Distance Learning Schedule

    Shown below is the schedule that we will follow while we are in distance learning or until further notice. Updates will be provided accordingly. 


    Course Introduction 

    AP Physics 1 is an algebra-based, introductory college-level physics course. Students develop their understanding of physics through inquiry-based investigations as they explore the following topics: kinematics; dynamics; work & energy; impulse & linear momentum; circular motion and universal gravitation; torque, rotational motion & angular momentum; simple harmonic motion; electric charge and electric force; DC circuits; mechanical waves and sound; general and special relativity; and quantum mechanics. 

    Shown below are the following topics covered in AP Physics 1 with the College Board's recommendation of allotted time per unit and weight distrubution on the AP Physics 1 Exam


    A tentative schedule of our 10 Unit Exams is shown below.
