Required Summer Assignment - AP Physics 1

AP Physics 1 students:

Please do the following summer work to make sure you are prepared for our class so we can hit the ground running.

1. Please read chapter 1 in our on-line textbook (link provided on this webpage). 

Then go to table of contents and chapter 1 Preface: The Nature of Science and Physics. Please read the four sections in the chapter as it will give you a good introduction to our course as well as some review of some basic skills in science. Following the sections, there is a review, along with some conceptual
questions and some problems. These are good problems, but they are optional.
