AP Physics and Honors Physics Study Group and Tutoring

The Summer AP Physics & Honors Physics Fundamental is designed for 10th /11th grade students who is now registered in Dr. Frank Lu’s “Physics Fundamental Class,” and who would want to continue their current physics studies through the summer.

It provides students with a strong foundation in Honored Physics and AP Physics concepts. The class will have many Questions and Problem Solving sessions to help students sharp their understanding of key concepts, learn how to apply those concepts to solve real physics problems. It offers the opportunity for high school students to build up Physics foundation that is required to succeed in taking the rigorous AP Physics in their base school; and to achieve high score in May 2017 AP test.

This class will start by a quick overview of what have already been covered so far and then venture into the following NEW contents: Center of Mass and Linear Momentum, Rotation, Rolling, Torque, and Angular Momentum, Electric Charge, Electric Fields, Gauss Law, Electric Potential and Circuits. Capacitance, Current and Resistance, Magnetic Fields, Induction and Inductance, Electromagnetic Oscillations and Alternating Current, Maxwell’s Equations and Magnetism of Matter. We also plan to cover selective major chapters from Optics and Thermodynamics.  *Teacher’s bio 

The text book is “Fundamentals of Physics” by Hallliday, Resnick, and Walker, the 7th Edition.
