What is the AP Physics 1 Exam?

AP Physics 1 is a course offered in high school, which is equivalent to a one-semester Algebra-based college Physics course that focuses on topics such as kinematics, energy, and DC circuits.  By taking in this course, students are afforded the opportunity to receive college credit in Physics and/or the advantage of taking more advanced courses in college.

Students who are wishing to receive college credit from taking this class must score a 3 or higher on the AP Physics 1 Exam in May.

This 3-hour exam measures how well students can correctly recall and utilize cumulative knowledge learned in their AP Physics 1 class.  Students must apply this knowledge in order to correctly answer both multiple-choice and free-response questions.

Students are allowed to bring either a four-function, scientific, or graphing calculator to the exam, and can use it throughout the entire exam.

The AP Physics 1  Exam is divided into 2 different parts:

Part 1 contains

multiple-choice questions

45 questions will have 4 answer choices in which 1 choice will be correct.

5 questions will have 5 answer choices in which 2 choices are correct.

Students will have 1 hour and 30 minutes to complete this section with the use of a calculator.

This section is worth 50% of the entire exam.

No partial credit will be given for any incorrect answers.

Part 2 contains

free-response questions

Each free-response question will have multiple sub-questions.

Students will have 1 hour and 30 minutes to complete this section with the use of a calculator.

This section is worth 50% of the entire exam.

Partial credit may be given for incorrect answers.

Topics on the AP Physics 1 Exam include:

  • Circular & Rotational Motion
  • Dynamics
  • Gravitation
  • Kinematics
  • Momentum
  • Simple Harmonic Motion
  • Torque

Prerequisites that students need to master for the AP Physics 1 Exam:

How is the AP Physics 1 Exam scored?

Both sections are scored together through the use of computers, specially appointed college professors, and experienced AP Physics 1 teachers.  This encompasses a student’s composite score which is translated to the 1-5 scoring system by statistical and mathematical processes.  Students with a score of 3 or higher will be able to submit their scores to prospective colleges to gain college credit in Physics and/or advanced placement in future college courses.

In 2018, only 5.2% of all students who participated in the AP Physics 1 Exam obtained a perfect score of 5.

Who benefits from AP Physics 1 tutoring?

 

In order for students to successfully prepare for the standardized AP Physics 1 Exam in May, they should start their preparation at the beginning of the school year by taking proficient class notes, correctly completing their AP Physics 1 homework, and diligently reviewing their class material.  However, some students may become inundated and overwhelmed by the material, which will hinder their progress in preparing for not only interim quizzes and tests, but ultimately for the end-of-the-year AP Physics 1 Exam.

Rather than attempting to go it alone in this case, which may in fact cause further confusion, students can choose to work closely with an experienced one-on-one AP Physics 1 tutor from The Glaser Tutoring Company, who will be able to reintroduce and teach specific academic

obstacles in a clear and comprehensive manner, all the while completely catering to a student’s unique learning style.  This will allow students to naturally absorb and retain the given AP Physics 1 material.

Some students may have academic obstacles that originate from the required prerequisites of AP Physics 1, such as Algebra and Geometry.  Not only will a versatile AP Physics 1 tutor be able to directly identify and address these obstacles, but will also be able to concurrently incorporate this new understanding of the prerequisite material into current Physics topics, giving students the necessary confidence to perform well not only in class, but also on the standardized AP Physics 1 Exam in May.

Learning principles that we stand by

Each student has a unique learning style

We understand that everyone learns differently.  That's why we tailor our lessons to meet the specific needs of each individual student.

Learn how to think, not what to think

During their academic career, students may fall into the habit of memorizing facts as their primary method of learning.  However, this does not allow students to think for themselves.  Instead, we constantly challenge our students in a way that requires them to think and formulate their own decisions, leading to intellectual growth.

Nothing great is achieved without commitment

Mastery does not happen overnight.  It requires hard work, perseverance, and a commitment to lifelong learning.  We help our students maintain their commitment throughout their academic journey.

Grades are the result, not the goal

We focus on something more important than just getting a certain grade on a transcript or report card.  Our goal is to provide our students with an interdisciplinary understanding that will help them perform better both in and out of the classroom.
