03165 AP Physics 1

AP Physics 1 covers Newtonian mechanics (including rotational dynamics and angular momentum); work, energy, and power; and mechanical waves and sound. The course also introduces students to electric circuits. AP Physics 1 is equivalent to a first-semester college course in algebra-based physics.

This course aligns with the College Board’s learning goals for AP Physics 1: Algebra-Based.

Prerequisites

  • Geometry (required)
  • Completion of or concurrent enrollment in Algebra II (required)

Course Texts and Materials
