These courses are collegelevel courses designed for advanced high school students who wish to study college material before they get to college. Naturally, these courses are more challenging, often covering difficult topics in far more detail than schools normally do. Part of the AP class is also the AP Test, which is sponsored by the College Board and, if the student is successful, allows the student to skip one or more semesters of college courses when the student gets to college. Classes are available for AP Calculus, AP Chemistry, AP Physics, and many more! AP Calculus AB AP Calculus AB introduces students to the study of differentiation and integration. Students begin by learning about limits, then apply this by mastering derivatives. Calculus AB ends after students are introduced to the concept of integration. AP Calculus BC AP Calculus BC teaches students about differentiation and integration. This course begins with limits and differentiation, then continues on to teach advanced methods of integration. The course ends with the application of calculus to sequences and series (such as Taylor series approximations) and calculus with polar coordinates and parametric equations. AP Physics B AP Physics B is college physics for nonphysicists. It covers a wide variety of topics, including mechanics, thermodynamics, optics, waves, electricity, magnetism, and modern physics. Each topic is discussed with the goal of teachings students how physical objects act in the real world. Mathematics at the level of Precalculus is used heavily throughout the course. Students who are interested in taking the SAT II Physics test should take Physics B. AP Physics C: Mechanics and Electricity & Magnetism AP Physics C is college physics for physicists and engineers. Students who study Physics C will be able to expand their understanding of the physical world beyond the specific cases studied in high school physics and tackle even the most specific problems. Because of the depth of study, Physics C only covers two subjects: mechanics and electricity and magnetism (E/M). Students must have a solid understanding of calculus before attempting this course.
