The Curriculum from the College Board

These resources are available for those who wish to take a deeper dive beyond what is in the syllabus.

Download the “Big Ideas” for Physics 1 and Physics 2 (1 page)

Download the “Science Practices” for Physics 1 and Physics 2 (7 pages)

Download the “Enduring Understandings, Essential Knowledge and Learning Objectives” organized by “Big Idea” for Physics 1. (7 pages)

Download the “Enduring Understandings, Essential Knowledge and Learning Objectives” organized by “Big Idea” for Physics 2. (7 pages)

The next document is a course description for AP Physics 1 and AP Physics 2. It is a huge 242 page document! However, reviewing the Concept Outline and the Big Idea sections can be very useful.

You may create a PDF version of the on-line book yourself. However, since, on the first day, the book was not available due to the web site being down, I am making it available here. Remember that this is copyrighted material. You may use it for yourself, but you may not distribute it to others.
