AP Physics is a college level course that uses advanced algebra and trigonometry as the primary tools for problem solving. The course covers topics in mechanics, energy, waves, thermodynamics, electricity, magnetism, optics, quantum theory, and nuclear physics. Students take the Advanced Placement Physics Examination in the spring. This course is recommended for students who have completed Honors Chemistry and are seeking an additional challenge far beyond the Regents Physics course.
