AP® Physics 2 is an algebra-based introductory college-level physics course. The course is based on second-semester introductory college physics and is designed for students interested in an upper-level science course or planning to enter life science or pre-med programs in college. The goal of the course is to develop an understanding of physics through inquiry-based investigations. Students explore principles of fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, electricity and magnetism, and atomic and nuclear physics. Additional supplemental topics are covered that build understanding of the primary College Board curriculum. Developing the ability to reason qualitatively and quantitatively is a principal focus. Those skills are developed through the use of modeling, graphing, diagramming, unit analysis, symbolic algebra, and data analysis. Laboratory exercises are used to enhance the investigation of each topic. This course is intended to prepare students for the AP® Physics 2 Exam in May.
