AP Physics C (Delve Class)

AP Physics C is taught over approximately twenty-five classes over the entire school year, for Delve 2010-2011.

Homework Assignments

All assignments are given from Giancoli's Physics, except where otherwise given. Level I problems are drill problems that just test the ability to regurgitate information learned. Level II test problem solving skills on some basic level. Level III problems are generally chosen to be fun, and are usually hard. Finally, the suggested readings are usually sections of the book that contain some interesting information.

Some classes are missing homework assignments. Eventually, I'll collect the assignments given back from students and note the problem numbers here.
