Course Description:

Grade 12 Advanced Placement Physics C is

a university level course in the field of mechanics.
Specifically, we will examine the topics of: Kinematics, Forces, Linear Momentum, Systems of
Particles, Center
of Mass, Work, Power, Energy, Rotational Kinematics and Dynamics, Oscillatory
Motion, and Universal Gravitation. This is the most difficult physics course offered at ASFM, and is
intended only for those who excel in physics and mathematics. It is highly de
manding, and will require
a much greater commitment from the student than is true in other physics courses. Introductory
concepts in differential and integral calculus will be used to develop concepts and solve problems in
each topic of the course. Student
s are therefore required to be concurrently enrolled in AP Calculus
AB. A heavy emphasis is placed on problem solving and the ability to apply concepts to novel
situations. Students will be expected to apply the principles that they have learned to a vari
ety of
unfamiliar situations, and to assess the validity of their solutions. Further, they will begin to see how
the various topics in the course support each other to form the basis of mechanics, and how the
calculus can be used as a tool for application

to these topics. Classes meet four days per week in a
58
-
minute period. Class activities include: lecture, lab, demonstrations, discussions, and “thinking
physics” question and answer sessions. Students are expected to emerge from this course with good
p
roblem solving and critical thinking skills. They will work with peers to set up and solve problems,
and to critique the solutions of other groups. They will also work individually to solve problems.
All
students enrolled in this AP course are required to

pay for and take the College Board exam in
May.

Course Outline:


In this course, there is a focus on
two major

teaching strategies:


1.

Laboratory application

using scientific inquiry (described below)


2.

Student centered
learning
, through guidance allowing students to do much of the learning
individually. Classes are generally based on scientific discussions and problem solving.
Guided inquiry is utilized in class discussions by use of open
-
ended questions. These
questi
ons drive the discussion and discovery of the physical concepts. These discussions
allow for a great amount of student involvement. Discovery of the physical concepts, through a
guided discussion and their link to the student's worldviews fosters student

centered learning.
Problems will be carefully selected and students will solve them individually and in groups by
use of hands on equipment, textbook or other materials. Solutions will be presented to the
class in showing the students different ways of
solving the same problem. The problems will
touch on the concepts discussed in class and will be analyzed with guidance.

Review for AP Test (12 classes)


Labs
:

Labs will constitute approximately 20% of class time

and if necessary students will stay after
school to set up/clean up labs and/or finish experimental procedures. Students are required to
keep a binder of all lab work and the graded reports that they h
ave submitted. This binder may be
required by a university as evidence of completion of the AP lab component.

Labs are intended to provide hands
-
on opportunities to apply and demonstrate physics concepts
and to apply problem
-
solving skills to solve particu
lar tasks.

Computer
-
based data collection and analysis using Logger Pro is an integral part of the labs. AP
Physics labs are specifically designed so that students will:




design experiments using scientific discovery



observe and measure real phenomena



organize, display, and critically analyze data



analyze sources of error and determine uncertainties in measurement



draw inferences from observations and data



communicate results, including suggested ways to improve experiments and propose
questions for fur
ther study
