• Welcome to AP Physics         Nighthawk logo


    Physics at MVHS is a mathematically-based college-preparatory course. In order to succeed in this class, the student must have good work habits, good laboratory skills, and be motivated to be successful. Because mathematics is utilized extensively in this class, the student must be concurrently enrolled in Math III or higher. Homework is assigned every day that class meets. The successful completion of the homework assignments are an important key to doing well in Physics.

    If a student is absent, he/she should check the Agenda page on the course HAIKU page for the assignment that they missed.  

    Please check out the links on the top of this page. There is a link to the web site for the Physics Textbook, Physics: Principles and Problems. This is a good resource for the Physics student. It includes an online multiple choice quiz for each chapter of the textbook. Students can receive immediate feedback and can take the quiz as many times as they would like. There is a database of questions for each chapter, so each time the student takes a quiz, the questions change. The online quiz is especially useful in preparation for a chapter test. There is also a link to the web site for the AP Physics Textbook by Giancoli. It also contains online quizzes and other resources.

    I am available for extra help after school every day for at least an hour and at lunch. I am confident that this school year will be a great one!
