Course Concept

AP Physics 1: Algebra-Based is an introductory college-level physics course designed to provide students with a foundation in the principles and concepts of physics. It emphasizes the application of algebraic problem-solving skills to analyze and solve physics problems.

The course covers a wide range of topics, including kinematics, dynamics, Newton's laws of motion, work, energy, power, momentum, circular motion, gravitation, and simple harmonic motion. It also introduces students to basic concepts in rotational motion, electrostatics, circuits, and waves.

1. Understanding Key Concepts: Students develop a conceptual understanding of physics principles and learn to apply them to various scenarios. They learn about fundamental concepts such as force, motion, energy, and waves, and explore how these concepts are interconnected.

2. Mathematical Problem-Solving: The course emphasizes the use of algebraic problem-solving techniques to analyze and solve physics problems. Students learn to set up equations, apply mathematical relationships, and use appropriate units to solve quantitative problems.

3. Experimental Design and Data Analysis: AP Physics 1 incorporates laboratory experiments to help students develop skills in experimental design, data collection, and analysis. They learn to interpret and evaluate experimental data and draw conclusions based on their observations.

4. Science Practices: The course focuses on developing students' scientific inquiry and reasoning skills. They learn to formulate scientific questions, design investigations, collect and analyze data, and communicate their findings effectively.

5. Critical Thinking and Reasoning: AP Physics 1 encourages students to think critically and reason logically when approaching physics problems. They learn to analyze complex situations, make connections between concepts, and apply their understanding to solve unfamiliar problems.

6. Free-Response Questions: The AP Physics 1 exam includes both multiple-choice and free-response questions. The free-response section allows students to demonstrate their ability to solve complex problems, design experiments, and explain physics concepts in writing.

Frequently Asked Questions

Read some of the most commonly asked questions by parents and students
  • Who are the AP Guru tutors?
    expand_more

    We have hand-selected a small group of highly qualified tutors who have mastery over teaching and helping students in the programs they teach. Our tutors also need to have significant previous teaching experience and be very gifted, dynamic teachers.

  • Where are your Programs held?
    expand_more

    We conduct our programs online.

    Is this a live class? Will it be a group or private class?
    All our classes are live instructor lead classes. All our academic tutoring are only one-on-one.

  • Is this a live class? Will it be a group or private class?
    expand_more

    All our classes are live instructor lead classes. All our academic tutoring are only one-on-one.

  • When is the best time to get started?
    expand_more

    The earlier the better! When students come to us right before it is time to apply to college, there is only so much we can do. We can certainly help these students with score improvements and craft as compelling an application as possible, but we are given experiences and data points that cannot be altered.

    When students come to us early in their educational careers, we pair them with a counselor to help them develop as applicants, students, and people early on. We help students strategize early, build their profiles, and stand out from their peers. We help students explore and develop their academic interests, engage in unique and meaningful extracurricular activities, strengthen their personal qualities and leadership skills, and ultimately, position them to get into the best schools possible.

    It takes A LOT of hard work, strategy, determination, and self-reflection to get into the school of your dreams. At AP Guru, we are here, every step of the way, to help you get there.

  • Do test prep courses work?
    expand_more

    Yes! Standardized tests focus on a small, unique set of skills and topics. By knowing exactly what types of questions are on the test, a student gains a distinct advantage. Furthermore, a great tutoring company can build on this advantage by providing a highly individualized learning experience and a wealth of fantastic strategies for all types of students.  We have the evidence from thousands of students across 10+ years that great improvement is possible for nearly everyone.

  • Do you only help students who want to go to top schools?
    expand_more

    No. We know that each student is different and has unique goals and aspirations. Our focus is to help each student excel in the tests and exams they are preparing towards.

  • What kind of results should I expect?
    expand_more

    In terms of academic scores, for students not already at the top of the range, we typically want to see at least a 20 percentile rank improvement (the actual raw score this translates to varies across the scale). Going from the 50th to 70th percentile or from the 70th to 90th typically opens up a whole new range of schools for students.
