There are many wonderful simulations available for AP Physics. We will use them throughout the course; however, simulations do not take the place of true lab time. College Board requires that a minimum of 25% of the course is used to conduct inquiry-based labs. Simulations will be used to prepare you for labs, generate class discussions and clarify any misconceptions.
