AP Physics C - P4

  • AP Physics C: Mechanics is equivalent to a one-semester, calculus-based, college-level physics course, especially appropriate for students planning to specialize or major in physical science or engineering. The course explores topics such as kinematics; Newton’s laws of motion; work, energy and power; systems of particles and linear momentum; circular motion and rotation; and oscillations and gravitation. Introductory differential and integral calculus is used throughout the course. Students are expected to take the Advanced Placement Physics C Exam in May.

    Recommended Materials
    1. Notebook (3 Ring)
    2. Pencil/Pen
    3. Scientific Calculator
    4. Wireless Mouse

    Please Note: Materials must be brought to class each day. Please do not impose upon your neighbors for materials.

    Grade Calculation

    50% Typically 100 Points
    Quizzes:  Typically 50 Points
    Labs/Projects:  10 – 100 Points
    40%  Assignments:  5 – 50 Points
    10% Progress Assessments





    Late work may receive the following point deductions:
         1 Days late:  -25% loss
         2 Days late:  -50% loss


    Students are expected to attend all classes. If a class is missed, it is the responsibility of the student to make up all work missed. This can be done by speaking with the teacher privately, not during class. Notes and class discussion are essential for learning. It would be beneficial to choose a partner who will be able to supply you with the notes from the day/days of your absence.

    All tests and quizzes must be made up within one week from the student’s return to class!!! -- Or they become ZEROS. All tests and homework must be made up. Labs and quizzes will be made up at the teachers’ discretion.

    Class Rules

    1. Be Prompt - Be in your seat, ready to learn when the bell rings.

    2. Be Respectful - Respect one another by raising your hand to respond and by remaining silent while someone else is speaking. Also show respect for others thoughts, questions, and responses.

    3. Be Prepared - Always bringing your textbook, notebook, paper, pen, and pencil to class.

    4. Be Safe – Horseplay and fooling around will not be tolerated. Do not bring any food or drinks into the lab.

    5. Follow Directions- Activities will include lectures, small group activities, and laboratory activities. It will be imperative the directions are followed carefully.
