*AP Physics C: Mechanics* is a rigorous course, meant to build on the foundation you established in Honors Physics. It represents a typical first semester of college physics, and is intended for students who plan to continue their studies in the physical sciences or engineering. Introductory differential and integral calculus are used throughout the course. Furthermore, it is assumed that you are taking *AP Calculus* concurrently. In this course, you will be engaged in high-level problem-solving in various topics in mechanics (see syllabus below). Labs, of course, make up another important part of this course.
