AP Physics 1 is a full-year course that is the equivalent of a first-semester introductory college course in algebra-based physics.

**AP Physics 1: Algebra-Based Exam (3 HOURS New format for 2018 and onward)**

Exam questions are based on learning objectives, which combine

science practices with specific content. Students are assessed on

their ability to:

- Provide both qualitative and quantitative explanations,

reasoning, or justification of physical phenomena, grounded in

physics principles and theories; - Solve problems mathematically — including symbolically —

but with less emphasis on only mathematical routines used for

solutions; - Interpret and develop conceptual models; and
- Transfer knowledge and analytical skills developed during

laboratory experiences to design and describe experiments

and analyze data and draw conclusions based on evidence.

Students will be allowed to use a four-function, scientific, or

graphing calculator on the entire AP Physics 1 and AP Physics 2

Exams.
