Physics C Mechanics

Course Info:

     Physics C Mechanics is a calculus-based course designed to expose the student to all the foundational topics needed to understand such concepts as motion, force, energy, momentum, rotation, harmonic motion, and gravitation. The program of study is equivalent to a first semester college physics course for engineering students.
This course will prepare the student for the AP* Physics C Mechanics test administered by the College Board every May.  The backbone of the course is a problem-solving approach that emphasizes methodology over memorization. Students must have prerequisite knowledge in mathematics up to and including the level of calculus.  Virtual and actual laboratory activities will prepare the student for lab-based questions on the AP* test.
