AP® PHYSICS C - MECHANICS
AP® Physics C Mechanics is a calculus based, college level physics course. The course is especially designed for students planning to enter college programs such as engineering or physical sciences. The goal of the course is to develop an understanding of physics through inquiry-based investigations. Students explore principles of Newtonian mechanics, work, energy, power, systems of particles, linear momentum, circular motion, rotation, oscillations, and gravitation. Students use differential and integral calculus. Students master topics that build understanding of the primary College Board curriculum, focusing on the ability to reason qualitatively and quantitatively. Students develop skills through modeling, graphing, diagramming, unit analysis, symbolic algebra and calculus, and data analysis. Laboratory exercises enhance the investigation of each topic. This course is intended to prepare students for the College Board AP® Physics C Mechanics Exam.
Prerequisite: Successful completion of or concurrent enrollment in calculus
Approved by: the College Board, NCAA and UC Schools
Course Year: September 2018 - May 2019
