SCP6010T: AP Physics Part 1+ (2022)

The online AP Physics 1+ (year-long) course is an algebra-based, introductory college-level physics course. Students cultivate their understanding of Physics through inquiry-based investigations as they explore topics such as Newtonian mechanics (including rotational motion); work, energy, and power; mechanical waves and sound; and introductory, simple circuits. The Advanced Placement Program enables willing and academically prepared students to pursue college-level studies with the opportunity to earn college credit, advanced placement, or both while still in high school. AP Exams are given each year in May. This course requires that 25 percent of the instructional time will be spent in hands-on laboratory work, with an emphasis on inquiry based investigations that provide students with opportunities to apply the science practices. The College Board recommends the following pre-requisite(s): completion of high school geometry and co-requisite of precalculus or equivalent.

Course Note: This course satisfies the Science (1 credit-Physics of 3 credits) graduation requirement. Weighted
