AP Physics 1: Algebra-Based Course and Exam Description
This is the core document for this course. Unit guides clearly lay out the course content and skills and recommend sequencing and pacing for them throughout the year. The CED was updated in the fall of 2021 to reflect the reduced scope of the course and now covers Unit 1 (Kinematics) through Unit 7 (Torque and Rotational Motion).

Draft Revised Curriculum Framework Available
Teachers are invited to preview the revised curriculum framework for Physics 1 and Physics 2. It’s been developed to create a more unified approach across all four AP Physics courses and to more accurately reflect the current expectations of introductory college courses. The framework is anticipated to go into effect for the 2023-24 school year (May 2024 AP Exam administration).
