About the Class:
AP Physics C is the equivalent to an physics class at the college level typically for physics and engineering majors. AP Physics C is a calculus based class and focuses on conceptual knowledge as well as the application of math. Much of this class is spent making observations, doing lab experiments, and watching demonstrations to help understand the laws that govern the motion of objects. Students do not need to have taken AP Physics 1 in order to do well in this class. Students should either be taking Calculus AB or have taken Calculus AB to do well in this class (if you know how to do power rule with integrals and dervatives... that's most of the calculus).
Students will need at least one quad-ruled notebook. It is required for this course and will store labs and bell-work. I highly recommend purchasing two so one may be used for notes. Below are some examples of acceptable and not acceptable quad-ruled notebooks that can be used in this class.
Classic Notebook Flimsy Notebook Notepad Notebook Spiral Bound Notebook
This is a great note- Not so great notebook. It will Very bad - hard to This is another good
book! Compact, sturdy, fall apart by 2nd semester. write in and very notebook. As long as
and classic. Has lots of Do not recommend unless you hard to grade.Please the cover is plastic it's
patterns and styles. like duct taping your notebooks do not buy this. a solid choice.

About the Exam:
The exam is Monday, May 3rd, 2021 at noon. The exam has two parts: multiple choice and free response. The multiple choice section has 35 questions to be completed in 45
minutes. The free response has 3 questions to be completed in 45 minutes. The exam covers these physics concepts:
-Work, Power, and Energy
-Rotational Motion and Torque
-Simple Harmonic Motion
AP Physics C also has an optional Electricity and Magnetism portion that follows right after the mechanics portion. Students who have taken Calculus BC or a higher level math class can be successful in this course. Some schools will not take the Mechanics credit without the Electricty and Magnetism credit.
