## Advanced Placement Physics 1 Parent

Program Description:
The accelerated program of study is designed to position students to engage in challenging and enriching course content. During the junior year, assignments and difficulty will focus on college readiness. During senior year, assignments and difficulty will focus on college level content.

Advanced Placement courses, are designed to be college level work.

Course Description:
In this course, we will explore the underlying, governing physical principles of our universe through the use of hypothesizing, observation, data gathering, and mathematical analysis.

Key topics to be discovered and discussed are as follows: data gathering and graphical analysis, mechanics, 1- and 2-dimensional kinematics, including Newton's Laws of Motion, statics and dynamics, conservation of momentum, work and energy conservation, wave motion, sound, electrostatics, and basic circuits. This course is the first part of a 2 year Advanced Placement Physics 2 course. Students will be expected to work to their full potential.
