Beyond The Classroom
Advanced Placement (AP) courses are rigorous, college-level courses and assessments offered in US high schools. Administered by the College Board, they have now replaced the SAT Subject Tests for college applications. Doing well on AP courses can translate to college credit in US and Canadian universities.
AP courses are structured to be self-study material with a standardized exam offered once a year. As such many high schools might not offer the correct guidance or teaching for AP courses.
AP courses are offered all throughout high school and as such can be taken by students aged 15-18 through self-study or proper classes.
The AP courses can be taken as a part-time option along with other subjects. Students can also take a combination of levels at CGA.
All exams are externally offered during a two-week period in May and can be taken at designated centers. 1 hour and 30 minutes paper Section 1 | Multiple Choice | 35 questions Section 2 | Free Response | 3 questions
Explore concepts such as kinematics; Newton’s laws of motion, work, energy, and power; systems of particles and linear momentum; rotation; oscillations; and gravitation. You’ll do hands-on laboratory work and in-class activities to investigate phenomena and use calculus to solve problems. Students will interpret and describe visual representations of physical situations, come up with a hypothesis and design an experiment to test it, create graphs and diagrams to represent data and physical situations, and analyze data shown in a graph.
