Free Online AP Physics 1 Course
We would like to share with you a free online course and resources for
AP Physics 1. If you are a physics teacher, would like to teach
physics, or are just interested in expanding your physics content
knowledge, this is a great opportunity!
Part 1 on linear motion just completed a successful run on edX. To stay
in sync with most high school AP classes we are going to run it again
starting this week! Part 2 (rotational motion) and Part 3 (electricity
and waves) will follow in the spring.
If you want to have a look at Part 1 of the course sign up here:
Both you and your students can register and use the resources for free.
Part 1 includes conceptual lectures, multiple choice and numerical
response questions, online lab activities, and a free online textbook.
You and your students can formally take the course through edX or
simply use the resources as you see fit. Please share the link with
any other teachers that you think might be interested!
To register for free click "Enroll Now" and then "Audit This Course".
Even if you audit you can still earn an edX certificate. The Verified
Certificate option comes with a little bit of extra content and
resources to prep for the AP Exam. You can audit now and upgrade to
Verified later if you wish.
We made the course with both students and teachers in mind. You can
join a teacher cohort within the course for extra content and to talk
to other teachers and our staff about AP Physics. We are also looking
for "super-users" who can help us evaluate the course. If you are
interested in either of these opportunities send a message
Finally, for the latest on our AP Physics plans and other course
Best wishes for your classes this year!
