1 Don't know what you will do after HS? - an opportunity for self discovery Are set on what you want to do in life? this class can change your views (student talking from experience) Want to exempt college physics in a supportive environment. Are curious about how the world works and like doing fun, interactive experiments. Why Take AP Physics 2 or C... If you AP Physics Overview - Inspired by the AP Physics C class of 2015

2 AP Physics 2 Modern Physics Thermodynamics Electrostatics Circuits Magnetism Light and Optics Fluids What will you learn? AP Physics Overview - Inspired by the AP Physics C class of 2015

3 JOBS Whether you want a physics degree or not, the universal truths found in Physics apply to all science majors Engineers; electrical, mechanical, audio, etc. Game Designers Doctors/Nurses/Sports Medicine Broadcasting and Media Music Finance Energy Management And of course, physics

4 AP Physics C Kinematics Forces Work and Energy Momentum Oscillations Rotational Dynamics Angular Momentum What will you learn? AP Physics Overview - Inspired by the AP Physics C class of 2015

5 Ping-Pong Cannon (BLOWING STUFF UP) Bottle Rockets Liquid Nitrogen Georgia Tech Inventure Labs and Fun Stuff in Physics C AP Physics C Overview - Inspired by the AP Physics C class of 2015

7 Labs and Fun Stuff in Physics 2 AP Physics C Overview - Inspired by the AP Physics C class of 2015 Rube Goldberg Project, if you love Legos, you’re about to meet your maker. Optics Lab, don’t LOOK too much into it. Hah, get it? Van de Graaff Generator, But don’t get shocked! Liquid Nitrogen and magnetic levitation, an uplifting experience:)

8 What students are saying: AP Physics C Overview - Inspired by the AP Physics C class of 2015 “Not only does this class hopefully prepare you to earn college credit at the fraction of the cost, Physics 2 opens your mind to think in ways that you could not fathom before. You'll definitely look at the world in a different light once you figure out what is actually going on through physics.” “If you are planning to pursue any form of college education, taking physics now in high school will give you the leg up to take even more rigorous courses in college. While other students who did not take advantage of this course are having their worlds rocked, you can feel confident while achieving an even deeper understanding of familiar topics and study requirements.” “There is no deciding factor. Everyone should take AP Physics 2.” “This class gives students a challenge, but as long as you take notes and pay attention the class is a lot of fun.” “I heard that Physics 2 was the hardest AP class offered at Collins Hill that was literally impossible to pass. That was wrong. I was more successful in Physics 2 that pretty much any other class I have taken.”

9 Ex-Student Mythbusters MythsTruths The work load is impossible While it’s true the class is challenging and will prepare you for college courses, Mr. Daly is a fierce advocate for your sanity ) The course will bring down your GPA Review sessions and after-school help covers all test material before tests. Tests reflect AP Exam Scoring. (So, 64%=A, and so on) You will cryThis I’m afraid is true… but Mr. Daly always has tissues and a shoulder to cry on, figuratively and literally - he is there to help. You will fail every testAP Physics style problems are recast into the high school grade scale with a square root curve - the college board thinks getting 6 out of 10 is excellent. That's an A in AP Physics.
