AP Physics C: Electricity and Magnetism is a one-semester, calculus-based, college-level physics course, especially appropriate for students planning to specialize or major in physical science or engineering.The course explores topics such as electrostatics; conductors, capacitors, and dielectrics; electric circuits; magnetic fields; and electromagnetism. Introductory differential and integral calculus is used throughout the course. 

AP Physics C: Mechanics is equivalent to a one-semester, calculus- based, college-level physics course, especially appropriate for students planning to specialize or major in physical science or engineering. The course explores topics such as kinematics; Newton's laws of motion; work, energy and power; systems of particles and linear momentum; circular motion and rotation; and oscillations and gravitation. Introductory differential and integral calculus is used throughout the course.

This course is a scientific project-based introduction to engineering experience that exposes the student to the variety of engineering fields and to the practice of engineering. The course has weekly meetings but is primarily Internet and teamwork based. Real world, open-ended engineering problems with an emphasis on hands on projects that cover a wide range of content will be presented. This course is intended for students who have an interest in engineering. Participation in the Mounds View High School FIRST Robotics Team is encouraged but not required.
