AP Physics C 

Terms: 3
Grades: 11,12,PG
Prerequisite:

  • A average in Math Physics, or B+ in Honors Physics;
  • B average in Precalculus Honors, OR B average in any level of Calculus

The Advanced Physics C course is a rigorous second-year course for Peddie's most able and motivated physics students. Its primary purpose is to prepare students for the AP Physics (Level C) exam in May. The course is divided into two parts: Mechanics (kinematics, dynamics, work and energy, momentum and collisions, rotational motion, gravitation, oscillations) and Electricity and Magnetism (electrostatics, electrical energy, current and circuits, magnetism, induction, Maxwell?s Equations), each of which take about half the year. Differential and integral calculus is used throughout the year. 

All students will be required to take the AP Physics Examination in May.
