AP Physics is concerned with describing the relationships between matter and energy. Topics include: motion and the relationship of force and motion, wave behavior (light, sound), electric and magnetic concepts, and an introduction to the modern concept of the atom and the universe. This course may not be taken for duplicate credit after regular Physics. This is a rigorous college-level course, requiring self-motivated & independent learners. Careful preparation is required.
