AP Physics

Course Description

The Physics B course models a college-level, systematic introduction to the main principles of physics and emphasizes the development of problem-solving ability. This course is based on calculus, so it is strongly advised that students have a functional knowledge of trigonometry, differential and integral calculus, and manipulating algebraic expressions.  It has a laboratory component and provides a good foundation for students planning a college matriculation in the life sciences, pre-medicine, and applied sciences, as well as some fields not directly related to science.
