AP Physics is a course designed to challenge your understanding and application of physics in the world around us. In this course, virtual missions not only deepen your comprehension of physics principles but also hone your problem-solving skills in dynamic, real-world scenarios. From guiding astronauts on Mars using vectors and scalars to navigating electrical circuits, each unit is crafted to provide a comprehensive learning experience that is both engaging and educational.

Vectors, Scalars, and Newton's Laws of Motion

First, you'll start with the basics of vectors and scalars, learning how to differentiate between these quantities and apply them to solve practical problems in outer space missions. This foundational knowledge will set the stage for more complex concepts such as forces, motion, and energy conservation. You'll explore Newton's laws of motion, delve into the principles of momentum and collisions, and determine Kepler's laws and the behavior of planets.

Electricity, Energy, Experiment with Waves 

Explore buoyancy, the Ideal Gas Law, and the principles underlying electrical circuits and resistance. You'll experiment with Ohm's law, build your own circuits, and understand how electrical systems work. The course also covers the electromagnetic spectrum, allowing you to explore the uses and dangers of electromagnetic waves and their application in modern technology. You can learn aspects of the quantum realm, exploring the photoelectric effect and the principles of fission and fusion, which hold the key to understanding both natural phenomena and the potential for future energy sources. The course rounds off with a look at the fundamental concepts of wave mechanics, light, and optics, providing you with the tools to analyze and predict the behavior of waves in various media.

Learning Objectives

  • Differentiate and apply vectors and scalars to real-world problems
  • Understand and use Newton's laws of motion to analyze motion and forces
  • Explain energy conservation principles and their applications in mechanical systems
