AP Physics 1

search MrBigler.com:


AP Physics 1: Algebra-Based covers the topics and concepts typically included in the first semester of an algebra-based, introductory college-level physics course. Topics include kinematics (motion), dynamics (forces), circular motion & gravitation, simple harmonic motion, momentum & impulse, energy & work, rotational motion & torque, electric charge & electric force, DC circuits (resistors only), and mechanical waves & sound. The course focuses on high-level understanding of concepts and experimental design, and prepares students for the AP Physics 1 exam in May.
