AP Physics 1

  • Welcome to the AP Physics 1 Summer Assignment!  We have so much to do and learn in the coming school year that we just cannot wait to begin! Hopefully, your summer plans include plenty of rest and relaxation. Many of you may be vacationing with family, working a full or part time job, and/or visiting colleges. As you enjoy all of these experiences, take time to "see the science" in them. What do I mean? Well, all of your modes of transportation, swims in the ocean or pool, and sunset watching have something in common! PHYSICS! You need to get excited about it! Of course, you also need to get ready for the serious business of learning about your world, and how the "things" that populate it, and the rest of the universe behave. Thus, the summer assignment... 
    Please refer to the attached file that is named "AP Physics 1 Summer Assignment 2019". You will need to print it and complete it.  YOU WILL NEED TO PICK UP A COPY OF THE TIPERS WORKBOOK FROM ME (IN G235) BEFORE THE END OF THE SCHOOL YEAR. You will need this in order to complete the summer assignment. PLEASE DO NOT WRITE ANYTHING IN THE TIPERS BOOK, OTHER THAN YOUR NAME IN THE INSIDE OF THE FRONT COVER.
    The four parts of the summer assignment will comprise 3 independent work grades. Part 1 will be a completion and accuracy grade- this is mainly a review of concepts with which you should already be comfortable. Parts 2 and 3 will be checked for completion and work (you should be able to correctly answer the questions if you really watch the videos and spend some time on this, but it is probably new information to some degree). Part 4 will be graded for completion and accuracy; if you have any questions about it, please email me. IT IS CRITICAL THAT YOU HAVE LOGGERPRO™ ON YOUR LAPTOP!
    You will also need to open and print the file "Forms for Day 1" below. They are: Lab Safety Contract, Science Department Mission Statement,  and the Academic Integrity statement, all in one pdf. You only need to bring in the "TEACHER COPY" of each form, signed by you and your parent/guardian.
    Finally, please sign up with the Remind system to receive text alerts. You should see the app on this page.
    I look forward to meeting you all over the next couple of weeks (come get your TIPERS book).
    Mrs. AF Carpinelli
