2018 Summer AP Physics, Honors Physics Fundamentals

Summer 2018 (Link: 2017 Summer Program)

This AP Physics/Honors Physics Summer Session will cover the following concepts:

(1) Conventions and Graphing
(2) Vectors
(3) Kinematics in one dimension
(4) Kinematics in Two Dimensions
(5) Dynamics
(6) Circular Motion
(7) Energy, Work, and Power
(8) Momentum and Impulse
(9) Gravity
(10) Electric Field
(11) Electric Potential
(12) Circuit Elements and DC Circuits
(13) Magnetism

Registration: www.oaktonacademy.com

The summer AP Physics/Honors Physics overview session 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 is designed for rising 11th and 12th graders who plan to take AP Physics or Honors Physics in the Fall. 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 AP exam.

NEW contents include: Motion in one and two dimensions, Force and Motion, Kinetic Energy and Work, Potential Energy and Conservation of Energy, 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. With time permission, we would also cover selective major chapters from Optics and Thermodynamics.  *Teacher’s bio

Instructor:  Dr. Frank Lu is an experienced teacher with a PhD in Physics & Artificial Intelligence (AI) . He received degrees from Fudan University, University of Maryland, and Duke University. Dr. Lu taught college students at UMBC (MD), and American University (DC). He also tutored and taught students from TJ, Oakton, and Langley High Schools as well as other private schools. His students have received excellent scores in SAT Physics (700 – 800) and AP Physics (5).

Dr. Lu’s unique instructional method and teaching style includes many question and problem solving sessions, sharpening students’ understanding of key concepts, enabling students to apply those concepts to solve real Physics problems in life, and building a solid foundation for the rigorous AP Physics Test.

From 2014 to 2017, some of Dr. Lu’s AP and SAT Physics students reported their admission to top schools, including Harvard, Yale, Stanford, U of Chicago, Georgetown, U of Penn, NYU Stern Business School, Penn State , Cornell, Notre Dame, UC Berkeley, Swarthmore, and other great colleges. One student M. Sun (2016) got admitted to Y/H/S, and he is currently attending Stanford; he received 5 on his AP Physics tests. Another student C. Song from Maryland (2016) who attended our SAT Physics class, got admitted to Upenn (Wharton), she received 780 for her SAT Physics test. Each year, we are very happy for those who have worked extremely hard, and who have demonstrated their intelligence, their potentials, and most importantly their enthusiasm in learning Physics.
