Welcome to the AP Physics 1 Summer Assignment! We have so much to do and learn in the coming school year that we just cannot wait to begin! Hopefully, your summer plans include plenty of rest and relaxation. Many of you may be vacationing with family, working a full or part time job, and/or visiting colleges. As you enjoy all of these experiences, take time to "see the science" in them. What do I mean? Well, all of your modes of transportation, swims in the ocean or pool, and sunset watching have something in common! PHYSICS! You need to get excited about it! Of course, you also need to get ready for the serious business of learning about your world, and how the "things" that populate it, and the rest of the universe behave. Thus, the summer assignment...
Please refer to the attached file that is named "AP Physics 1 Summer Assignment 2017". You will need to print it and complete it. It is due on the first day of classes. You will also need to open and print the file "Forms for Day 1" below. They are: Lab Safety Contract, Science Department Mission Statement, and the Academic Integrity statement, all in one pdf. You only need to bring in the "TEACHER COPY" of each form, signed by you and your parent/guardian. The last document to print is the "AP Physics 1 Information" document. This explains the course requirements, expectations, and includes a general syllabus.
If you look to the right of your screen, you should see our Remind.com link. Please sign up to receive text alerts.
I look forward to meeting you all in the fall.
