AP Physics I

AP Physics 1 is an algebra-based, introductory college-level physics course designed by the College Board. Students develop and demonstrate their understanding of physics through classroom study, in-class activities, and hands-on, inquiry-based lab work. AP Physics 1 is a mechanics-only course, which explores 7 units: kinematics, dynamics, circular motion, energy, momentum, simple harmonic motion, and rotational motion. It is designed to be a first-year physics course which you can take without prior physics experience.
