AP Physics "C"

  •  
    Welcome to AP Physics C. The coming school year will be challenging but rewarding!
    There are several files to download:  The purpose of this assignment is to ensure that you have an introduction to the basics of calculus, vectors, and kinematics.
    • Welcome letter
    • Introduction to Calculus with worksheets
    • Vectors
    • Kinematics
    • Forms for Day 1
    Please print and complete the assignments if you have not received them from me directly. All parts are due on the second day of school, September 6th.  You will need a copy of the Serway-Jewitt "Physics for Scientists and Engineers, 9th ed." You should pick up a copy from G231 by June 12th. Your actual text book is online and will be made available to you when the new school year starts. The "Forms for Day 1" should also be signed. Please read through all three parts. You and your parents should sign and date where indicated. Please bring in the "Teacher Copy" part of each form on the first day of school.
     
    One resource that may be helpful for you is a free online course through EdX. It is called "On Ramp to AP Physics C Mechanics" and you can find it at this link: https://www.edx.org/course/on-ramp-to-ap-physics-c-mechanics.  There is a similar course that covers the AP Physics 1 material, so if this fall will be your first experience with physics, you may benefit from the AP 1 online course. In either case, there is no need to pay for a certificate; you can audit either course and finish at your own pace, or just try pieces of it to review and/or orient yourself to the content.  Neither course is a requirement for our class, but feel free to try them out and let me know whether or not they were helpful.

    Additional comment: If, while completing the calculus section of your packet, you are having trouble with Doc Schuster, another really good series of videos can be found at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1jKYaOrCX-8 (Viren's Videos).
