Welcome to Astronomy ! We will explore the universe through lab experiences, projects, and classroom assignments.

AP Physics 1 is an algebra-based, introductory college-level physics course. The course explores
traditional Newtonian Physics (kinematics, dynamics, energy, momentum, rotation, simple harmonic
motion, and mechanical waves) with an introduction of circuitry. The course stresses inquiry-based
learning to develop scientific critical thinking and reasoning skills in students. A minimum of  Twenty-five percent of class time is devoted to laboratory work. In lab, students will use a variety of methods to collect data and conduct investigations. In class, in addition to direct instruction, they will explore concepts using interactive simulations, collaborative activities, demonstrations, and formative assessments. 

Materials:

Students are required bring  iPads, fully charged, to class. If they prefer to take notes on paper, they should have a paper notebook. A composition book is required for labs. 

Ipads will be used for class work, homework, tests, quizzes, notes and interacting with lab equipment. 

Pencils, pens, and calculators are also needed, and I recommend purchasing your own scientific calculator that is capable of scientific notation and uses both radians and degrees. 

We will be using the OpenStax's AP Physics online book.
