Physics 1: MechanicsPhysics 1: Mechanics brings together advanced problem solvers to explore key concepts in physics. Experienced instructors guide students to creatively solve problems in kinematics, forces, Newton's laws, Newtonian gravity, fluid statics and dynamics, and more. Course materials include handouts and homework sets. Instructions for optional at-home lab activities will also be provided. Students who complete this course are well prepared for all topics on the AP Physics 1 exam. |

Who Should Take?
This course is intended for students who are interested in learning mechanics and Newton's laws. It covers the material on the AP Physics 1 exam, and is suitable for students interested in taking that exam. Students who have completed a typical algebra course or our Introduction to Algebra A are ready for Physics 1: Mechanics. This course does not require previous physics experience, though we recommend Introduction to Physics for students looking to build their foundation in physics thinking.
