AP Physics 1

COURSE DESCRIPTION

“For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.” Romans 1:20

Paul in his message to the Romans described God’s qualities being clearly understood.  The topics of physics shows us some of these things that are “clearly seen” in nature.  The invisible characteristics of our natural world points to the Creator.  Since we have natural laws to study, … there must be a natural law giver… God.

AP Physics 1 is an algebra-based class equivalent to a first-semester college course in algebra-based physics. The course covers Newtonian mechanics (including rotational dynamics and angular momentum); work, energy, and power; and mechanical waves and sound. It will also introduce electric circuits. It will be taught with an inquiry-based approach.
