Dr.Rigol's AP PHYSICS I

Cooper City High School

2016-2017

Syllabus

This course provides a systematic introduction to the main principles of physics and emphasizes the development of conceptual understanding and problem-solving ability using algebra and trigonometry, but rarely calculus. In most colleges, this is a one-semester course including a laboratory component. The AP Physics I course provides a foundation in physics for students in the life sciences, pre-medicine, and some applied sciences, as well as other fields not directly related to science
