AP Physics B
The material at this website are for an AP-B level physics course as part of the STEM-RIDE partnership for teaching advanced STEM classes through distance education. STEM-RIDE is a partnership between Tarleton State University and six rural, smaller (1A to 3A) North Texas High Schools (Alvarado, Early, Glen Rose, Maypearl, Santo, and Stephenville). For more information about the project consult the STEM-RIDE website.
This particular course was a proof-in-concept course taught by Dr. Daniel K. Marble of the Tarleton State University Physics Program in AY2013-2014 and funded by the Sid Richardson Foundation.
All physics curriculum materials on this site were developed by Dr. Daniel K. Marble and Christopher Brian Marble and are copyrighted. Materials cannot be used or reproduced without the authors' permission.
Assignments & Handouts (Week of January 6)
Because of the different starting times for various campuses as well as various campus holidays, their will not be an exam next week on Monday. As I mentioned prior to the break, we will move quickly through the material in the next couple of chapters due to time constraints so students planning to take the AP Exam in May will need to do additional work outside of class. We will review material from Chapter 11 covered before the break and then move on to consider a special case of waves (Sound) in Chapter 12.
