    The AP Physics C Companion - Mechanics

    The AP* Physics C Companion - Mechanics is an easy-to-read companion to the AP Physics C: Mechanics curriculum, featuring 350 sample problems with fully worked-out solutions. The AP Physics C Companion: Mechanics covers all major topics of the AP Physics C Mechanics course, including fundamentals of calculus, kinematics, dynamics, work, energy, momentum, rotation, oscillations, and gravity.
    The AP Physics C Companion is not a textbook replacement nor is it a strict test-prep guide. It is a short, sweet roadmap to calculus-based physics courses such as AP Physics C: Mechanics and University Physics I, invaluable not just during test prep time, but throughout the entire course. The book lays out basic physics principles as quickly and clearly as possible, then demonstrates their application with hundreds of example problems solved in detail.
    Written by a physics teacher, The AP Physics C Companion correlates directly with the APlusPhysics.com website, where you will find free video mini-lessonsexplaining fundamental concepts, detailed study guides, a question and answer discussion board, and most importantly, a meeting place where you can interact with other students from around the world.

    Fundamentals of LaTeX for High School Students

    LaTeX is a commonly used science, technology, engineering and mathematical (STEM) typesetting program.  It is designed to allow writers to focus on content while producing high quality output.  Unlike Microsoft Word or Apple Pages, however, it is not a what-you-see is what you get (WYSIWYG) interface, and therefore has a steeper learning curve than some of the more commonly available writing tools.  The program is available on a wide variety of platforms, including Windows, Mac OSX, Unix, Linux, and even iOS.  For the purposes of getting started, we'll assume you will be using a web-based implementation of LaTeX.
    Advantages of LaTeX are a clean, crisp output while allowing the writer to focus on writing and content as opposed to appearance of the final document.  Students are highly encouraged to focus on writing the entire document first, then coming back later to tweak the stylization and appearance of their final product.
    First invented by Don Knuth in 1970, LaTeX was designed as a tool to help publish a computer programming book.  Since then, however, it has been built into a wide number of systems and applications, some free, some commercial, and has been expanded with a wide variety of packages which extend the functionality of the typesetting system.
    This guide is intended to provide you a starting reference.  Although it looks complex and does involve a bit of a learning curve, once you gain a bit of experience you'll find you can write high quality technical documents very quickly.  Please note that there are tons of additional commands and capabilities built into LaTeX that are extremely accessible with just a bit of Google-Fu.

    Measuring Circles LaTeX Lab Report

    This is a .zip file containing a sample lab report created using LaTeX.  It is designed to be used as a template for students interested in creating professionally-typeset lab reports while focusing on writing and content instead of stylization.

    AP Physics 2 Essentials - An APlusPhysics Guide

    AP Physics 2 Essentials is an easy-to-read companion to the AP Physics 2 curriculum, featuring more than 450 worked-out problems with full solutions. AP Physics 2 Essentials covers all major topics of the AP Physics 2 course, including fluids, thermal physics, electrostatics, circuits, magnetism, optics, and modern physics.

    AP Physics 2 Essentials is integrated with the APlusPhysics.com website, which includes online question and answer forums, videos, animations, and supplemental problems to help you master the essential concepts of physics.

    This book is designed to assist physics students in their high school AP Physics courses both as a guide throughout the course as well as a review book to assist in end-of-course exam preparation. Its focus is on providing the bare bones, essential concepts necessary for success in the course in a straightforward and easy-to-read manner, leaving development of in-depth problem solving and lab work to the classroom, where it is most effective. In short, this is not intended as a substitute for a standard textbook or course, but rather as an invaluable supplementary resource.

    This book includes more than 60 AP-style problems to test your understanding and help prepare you for the AP Physics 2 Exam. Additional supplemental problems are available on the APlusPhysics website.

    LAB: Wave Speed with Standing Waves in Springs

    A lab in which students oscillate an extended spring to create standing waves. By measuring the period or frequency of the standing waves, as well as the wavelength, students calculate the speed of the wave using the wave equation.

    Ultimate goal of this lab is to have students understand that the type of wave and the medium determine the speed of the wave. The wave equation, holds true and describes a relationship, but the speed of the wave is not determined by adjusting the wavelength or frequency.

    Materials:
    Long springs
    stopwatches
