This course will be equivalent to a semester long calculus based mechanics course taken at a university. Topics will include: measurement; linear motion in 1, 2, and 3 dimensions; vectors; forces and motion; kinetic energy, potential energy and work; systems of particles; linear momentum; rotational motion, torque, and angular momentum; law of universal gravitation; and oscillations. A major goal of this class will be to prepare the students for the AP Physics C Mechanics exam, which will involve rigorous coursework.
Grades will be updated at least every two weeks. Grades were last updated on Thursday, September 19, 2019.
