Syllabus Title: 
AP Physics C: Electricity and Magnetism
Syllabus Description: 

Get ready to dive deep into the forces that electrify and magnetize in AP Physics C: E & M. You’ll investigate the unseen fields and forces of electricity and magnetism. You’ll study circuitry and the relationship between magnetic fields and current. This is a single semester course. Prerequisites: Successful completion of Calculus. Concurrent enrollment in Calculus is acceptable. Completion of an introductory Physics course is recommended.

Notice Description: 

If you want to receive “a-g” credit, please note that hands-on wet labs are required. Make sure that your school can provide the equipment and supervision necessary. An alternate method of satisfying “a-g” requirements appears on the UC Admissions page, and requires a “Score of 3, 4 or 5 on any two AP Exams in Biology, Chemistry, Physics (B, C, 1 or 2) and Environmental Science; score of 5, 6 or 7 on any two IB HL exams in Biology, Chemistry or Physics.” OUT-OF-STATE SCHOOLS: Schools not interested in “a-g” credit are welcome to use the online portion of the course without providing wet labs but should know that wet labs constitute 20-25% of the full course.
