COURSE DESCRIPTION
Physics is all around us.  It is in the electric light bulb you turn on in the morning; the car you drive to work; your wristwatch, cell phone, mp3 player, and that big plasma TV set you want.  It makes the stars shine every night and the sun shine every day, and it makes a baseball soar into the stands for a homerun.  You are currently enrolled in a science class that will help you make sense of the world in which you live.  This course will use an algebra-based approach to explore several AP Physics topics: Mechanics; Electricity & Magnetism: and Simple Harmonic Motion, Waves & Light.
