Advanced Placement courses created by the College Board in the USA are tough to learn due to their high standards and they are aimed at only by high performers at school. AP Physics is considered to be a tough course and it expects much of brain work from students.
What is AP Physics?
AP Physics B has been converted into AP Physics 1 and 2 now and they are Algebra based courses with an emphasis on reasoning, critical thinking and learning through inquiry. Newtonian Mechanics, Rotational Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Optics and Electricity are some of the topics covered in AP Physics 1 and 2. AP Physics C includes Electricity and Magnetism. Methods of Calculus are used for forming physical principles and applying them to problems.
