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.
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.
