AP Physics 2

Elective: for Grades 10-12

The AP Physics 2 course is aligned with the College Board AP standards. This course is designed to be the equivalent of the second semester of an introductory, algebra-based college Physics course. AP Physics 2 explores topics such as fluid statistics and dynamics; thermodynamics with kinetic theory; PV diagrams and probability; electrostatics; electrical circuits with capacitors; magnetic fields; electromagnetism; physical and geometric optics; and quantum, atomic, and nuclear physics. Through inquiry-based learning, students will develop scientific critical thinking and reasoning skills. The topics of this course are reinforced with a strong emphasis on laboratory experiences.
