Reading and book problem assignments in AP Physics C. I intend to go over problems marked with an asterisk* in class. I will answer questions on the other problems if you ask. Please add an icon for this page to the screen on your phone, or bookmark the page, rather than making a hard copy. Changes might take place throughout the year.

Some common questions from students, with replies.
An exploration of how physicists make sense of the natural world, with AP Physics 1 and 2 vocabulary.
Vocabulary and insights related to experimental design and the nature of scientific knowledge.
Some vocabulary and principles of measurement applicable to all physics classes.
Video review materials for AP Physics 2 students on the mathematical processes we will use throughout the year. Expertly crafted by Mr. Spencer as an AP Physics 1 summer work assignment.
As defined by the College Board, scientific inquiry consists of very specific processes and skills sets, which all students can learn.
Some students have trouble writing inquiries. Here is a template that may help.
The AP Physics 2 and AP Physics C curricula include a standard method for graphical analysis so that experimental data may be used to confirm or refute a hypothesis. The steps in this graphical analysis are described and exemplified below.
A reference to this cornerstone of classical physics.
Issues of grammar and usage do emerge as physics is explained. Here is an inventory.
Learn some tips for success in class and see how many recommended learning strategies you regularly use.
This is a good introduction to early work for new physics students in AP Physics 1, CP Physics, and Active Physics. It's also a good review for those entering their second year of physics study in AP Physics C and AP Physics 2. AP Physics 1 and 2 students should first complete the summer work to be found here
Things I say to make your lives easier, all on one page. A work in progress.
