AP Physics 1 and 2 (Algebra based) Tutoring

Why Advanced Placement Physics 1 and 2 Courses?

AP Physics Courses 1 and 2 provide a foundation in physics for students in the life sciences, pre-medicine, and some applied sciences, as well as other fields not directly related to science. It is a preparation for more advanced physics and engineering courses. The course provides a systematic development of the main principles of physics; emphasizing problem solving and helping students develop a basic understanding of physics concepts. Students should be familiar with algebra and preferably trigonometry also else trigonometry topics will be covered in the course. Basic concepts of calculus are not required.

In early 2014, the College Board divided the AP Physics B syllabus into two one-year courses Physics 1 and Physics 2, both of which are algebra based. AP Physics C continues to be a calculus based course divided into Physics C – Mechanics and Physics C – Electricity and Magnetism.
