Re: Advanced Placement Physics

Title: RE: Advanced Placement Physics

I've taught the Physics B to first year students, and the results have been from 3's to 5's on the AP exam.  They were exceptional students however.  Usually we do not let a first year physics student take AP.

Subject: Advanced Placement Physics

The calculus teacher and I have a chance to teach the
same group of students both calculus and physics at the
same time.  Calculus is presently an advanced placement
course while physics is not.  Is it realisticallt posible to
prepare students to take the advanced placement test in
physics with just one year of physics.
