I no longer have access to my online gradebook with your school email addresses...  Please let other interested AP students know...
                    






eLearning Assignments:           AP Exam Info:

                      AP Physics Exams were Monday, May 11th 
                11AM -Mechanics, 1PM -Electricity & Magnetism (without the Magnetism)
(You'll need to log on a half an hour early to fill out demographic information.)

                Recommendations for Studying for the AP Exams:
                    1)  Be aware of what topics aren't covered on this year's exams.  
                         Mech: No Universal Gravitation or Simple Harmonic Motion(Last topic is Rotation, including Rolling Motion and Angular Momentum.  
                         E&M: No Magnetism or Electromagnetic Induction (Last topic is RC Circuits.) 
                    2)  Take the 1998 AP C Exam, Linked here.  (Thanks, Uma!)  Then go to the Flippin Physics site, where every problem from the exam is worked through in a video.  This site has other nice review resources, too.
                    3)  Flip through your class notes and old unit packets.  You have solved all of these problems correctly, and since you took your notes in color, things that were tricky for you will "pop" out at you when you look 
                          through them.
                    4)  If you're looking for more practice problems, then this link takes you to the mother lode of old AP problems, arranged by topic, with answers! 
                    5)  Here I have made a file with old AP Free Response Problems that feature Experimental Data Analysis and/or Experimental Design.  College Board has indicated that this will be featured on this year's exam.
