AP Physics 1


Many scientists and engineers consider physics the most basic of all sciences. Physics focuses on the development of models deeply rooted in scientific inquiry, in which mathematics is used to describe and predict natural phenomena and to express principles and theories. AP Physics 1 is an algebra based physics course that covers a very wide range of topics, including mechanics, waves, and electricity.
