AP Physics C - Course Organization for 2022-2023

Teaching AP Physics C is a fun and rewarding experience, but organizing the course can be challenging — especially if you teach Mechanics and Electricity and Magnetism. This is my eighth year of teaching a combined AP Physics C course, during which I’ve used different course organizations. The course organization is fitted to the schedule and students of the Singapore American School: The school has an alternating 80-minute block schedule; AP Physics C is a second-year course for students. Please keep these constraints in mind when reading the course organization document.
