Ap physics b or c

AP Physics B or C

Which course is right for you?


Why take high school physics

Why take High School Physics?

  • Modern technology involves physics

  • Leads to a better understanding of any science

  • Physics classes develop critical thinking skills

  • Polishes the skills needed to score well on the SAT


Why take high school physics1

Why take High School Physics?

  • College success in science, computing, engineering, and premed depends in part on passing physics

  • College recruiters recognize the value of physics classes

  • Job market for people with skills in physics is strong

Prepare Now to Succeed in College

A 1999 U.S. Department of Education study found that the strongest predictor of college graduation is something students do before they ever go to college: Participate in rigorous, college-level courses in high school—and AP courses in particular.

Clifford Adelman, Answers in the Tool Box: Academic Intensity, Attendance Patterns, and Bachelor’s Degree Attainment (1999), U.S. Department of Education.

AP and College Success™

Students who take AP courses and exams are much more likely than their peers to complete a bachelor’s degree in four years or less.

Which ap physics course

Which AP Physics Course?

  • AP Physics Bprovides an overview of physics topics covering a wide spectrum of topics using algebra skills

  • AP Physics Cprovides an in-depth, rigorous study of mechanics and electromagnetism using Calculus skills


Ap physics b

AP Physics B

  • Excellent training for future college students majoring in pre-med, architecture, chemistry, engineering and physics

  • Passing the AP exam with a 3 or higher usually results in a general science college credit


Ap physics c

AP Physics C

  • Equivalent to the introductory physics courses offered for science and engineering majors at most colleges and universities

  • Passing the AP exam with a 3 or higher usually results in a credit for a required college physics course


Ap physics c ap calculus bc

AP Physics C AP Calculus BC

  • Combining studies in these two courses provides the greatest depth of understanding of content and applications

  • Provides the rigorous preparation required for a college major in engineering or physical science


Ap physics c ap calculus bc and multivariable calculus

AP Physics C, AP Calculus BC and Multivariable Calculus

  • Adding multivariable calculus to AP Physics C and AP Calculus BC allows the greatest understanding for engineering/physical science students

  • Provides the most rigorous foundation available at the top high schools in the country, like the NCSSM

Why take high school physics2

Why Take High School Physics?

  • LNHS is striving to provide a rigorous foundation so our students can:

    • Gain acceptance at the best colleges.

    • Succeed in their engineering and science studies in college.

    • Earn college course credit so they can graduate in four years or less and reduce tuition and other expenses.


Why take high school physics3

Why Take High School Physics?

  • Physics is a cornerstone of this effort

  • AP Physics B/C, in particular, are a critical part of student preparation and are essential to those interested in the engineering or physical science fields.
