Description

AP Physics 2 is an algebra based,  introductory college level physics course. .Students explore topics such as fluid statics and dynamics; thermodynamics with kinetic theory; PV  diagrams and probability; electrostatics; electrical circuits with capacitors; magnetic fields; electromagnetism; physical and geometric optics; and quantum,  atomic, and nuclear physics. Review the course content in the next tab List of Topics.

Each student is assigned to an AP Physics 2 Stutorialz tutor to help them during their AP Physics 2 online course. This course is a combination of digital sessions with the assigned tutor and a series of online self-study work including AP Physics 2 practice tests. Students have up to two live sessions per week with the tutor at an agreed upon time, and they also actively engage with the lectures, utilize online AP Physics 2 resources, and solve AP practice tests at the end of each chapter. Computer-based interaction and assignment completion helps to reinforce concepts taught during the online course. Students and parents are able to check in on the student’s progress and access graded assessments online, which include chapter quizzes, midterm exams, and a cumulative final.

Mastered AP Physics 1? Congratulations! Time for number two. Like AP Physics 1, AP Physics 2 is an algebra-based, introductory college-level physics course. Students explore topics such as fluid statics and dynamics; thermodynamics with kinetic theory; PV diagrams and probability; electrostatics; electrical circuits with capacitors; magnetic fields; electromagnetism; physical and geometric optics; and quantum, atomic, and nuclear physics. Your designated Stutorialz AP Physics 2 tutor will help students understand these advanced concepts through one-on-one digital sessions, practice tests, quizzes, and other resources throughout the course. Students and parents are able to check in on the student’s progress and access graded assessments online, which include chapter quizzes, midterm exams, and a cumulative final.

  • Have mastered the content and material of both Algebra I and Geometry courses.
  • Have either mastered the content and material of an Algebra II course or be concurrently enrolled in that Algebra II course alongside the Advanced Placement Physics course.
  • Apply basic mathematical principles such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of numbers with exponentials and/ or scientific notation.
  • Apply basic mathematical principles such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of numbers associated with ratios, proportions and significant figures.
  • Convert from fractions to decimals to percentages and reversals of steps.
  • Solve basic probability problems.
  • Convert from one unit to other units using S.I. units and dimensional analysis (metric prefixes)
  • Solve and manipulate algebraic equations with one or more unknown variables.
  • Apply order of operations so as to solve various equations.
  • Have a foundational understanding of geometry and trigonometry, for using right triangles, the Pythagorean Theorem and manipulating equations including sin, cos, and tan.
  • Be proficient in visualization and/ or spatial reasoning skills for rotating objects in space, as rigid bodies are undergoing three dimensional motion.
  • Maintain a reading pace of two chapters or more per week.
  • Reach a level of proficiency in the comprehension of an English language text.
  • Have the capability of taking notes over the chapter sections and making sense of the vocabulary as well as the concepts.
  • Apply logical reasoning to solve problems and derive solutions from a problem, in general.
  • Distinguish abstract concepts and apply them along with evidence ie., data, to justify specific conclusions in problem solving processes.
  • Familiarize themselves with tools that physicists use such as the scientific method as well as others.
  • Be proficient in computer spreadsheet programs, so as to handle and manipulate data.  This is for the use of the formula writing skills as well as creating graphs and charts using data in the spreadsheet.
  • Provide explanatory answers rather than just the number solution to problems. Students who have proficient verbal skills tend to perform better on the paragraph portion of the AP test.
  • Practice assessment taking strategies so as to be adept at navigating through test situations in a timely manner.
  • Provide answers for both quantitative solutions as well as qualitative solutions and discerning between the two, as to which the test is referring to, when given a test prompt.
