Welcome to AP Physics 1: Algebra Based

I hope this new year we can start with a fresh vibe, that way we will enjoy this amazing class and get the best out of it.

As the name of the subject suggests, you will require a solid knowledge of Algebra and General Math for this class.

The AP Physics 1 Course has been designed by the College Board as a course equivalent to the Algebra-based college-level Physics class. At the end of the course, students will take the AP Physics 1 Exam, which will test their knowledge of both the concepts taught in the classroom and their use of the correct formulas. Students will have the opportunity to meet the learning objectives in a variety of ways and apply their knowledge to real world experiences and societal issues. Instruction involves a variety of student-centered, inquiry-based activities that focus on experimentation. Students have the opportunity to work cooperatively to solve challenging problems and to present their solutions to the class. Throughout the year connections to the world are explored in discussions, group projects, and class demonstrations. In the classroom, graphing calculators and digital devices will be used for interactive simulations, Physlet- based exercises, collaborative activities, and formative assessments. Laboratory work will offer frequent opportunities to work cooperatively, explore ideas, present information, and practice scientific argumentation.

Use of scientific argumentation will be standardized with the CER (Claim, Evidence, Reasoning) format. We will practice creating, evaluating, and critiquing scientific claims. Then we will look at the evidence available or provided and look for connections with the original claim. This includes analysis of the data. Students will learn to make and evaluate sound reasoning based on the previous claims and evidence. This will improve their ability to use questioning, critical thinking, and seeking clarification. Outside of class students read the assigned text and complete homework assignments that support and reinforce each lesson as well as what has been learned in the laboratory setting. They may also need to prepare for certain labs outside of class depending on experimental designs the students come up with for inquiry based labs.

This website contains many resources that will help you to understand better the dynamics on the classroom.

Students will need to bring the following supplies to class every day:

Notebook-for labs

Pencils

Eraser

Binder/Paper

Pens (3 different colors at least)

Calculator

Our text will be online accessible, the students will receive the access code at the beginning of the school year. We also have hard copies of the college level book that will be assigned to each student.

Good Luck and remember, you are in a College Class now!!!
