Fixed-Pace Course


Physics and AP Calculus AB



AP Physics C: Electricity and Magnetism is a calculus-based, college-level physics course — appropriate for students planning to major in physical science or engineering. This course prepares you to take the AP Physics C: Electricity and Magnetism exam. Topics include electrostatics, electric circuits, magnetic fields, electromagnetism, and conductors, capacitors and dielectrics. Introductory differential and integral calculus are used thoroughly. This course may be combined with the fall semester AP Physics C: Mechanics to create a full-year course option.

Completion of this course requires regular access to a laptop or desktop computer with working microphone and webcam, as well as a reliable internet connection., In addition, this course includes a lab component and requires the purchase of additional materials.

This Fixed-Paced course incorporates a blend of synchronous and asynchronous elements. Students and teacher meet live via zoom on a regular weekly schedule. In addition, students complete coursework including guided readings, interactive videos, text and video-based discussion threads, problem sets, individual and collaborative projects, and so on. While these activities are time-flexible, teachers sequence them with weekly deadlines to help students keep on track and encourage and support the development of productive time management skills.
