There is no better way to show colleges that you’re ready for the rigor of college classwork than to take AP classes. That’s because they are all equivalent to an introductory college course. And some, like AP Calculus BC, even go beyond the introductory level. In addition, most high schools are in alignment with the College Board’s approved AP curriculum, making the content stand on equal footing from school to school and thus easier to compare applicants. The AP exams offered by the College Board in May give students a chance to add a potentially lustrous data point to their application - as well as college credit!

This is the equivalent of an introductory college course in calculus. The focus is on concepts and applications of differential and integral calculus, including:

- Limits and Continuity
- Differentiation: Definition and Fundamental Properties
- Differentiation: Composite, Implicit, and Inverse Functions
- Contextual Applications of Differentiation
- Analytical Applications of Differentiation
- Integration and Accumulation of Change
- Differential Equations
- Applications of Integration

The AP Physics courses are divided into algebra-based physics (AP Physics 1 or 2) and calculus-based physics (AP Physics C: Mechanics or C: Electricity and Magnetism). The Physics C courses are more rigorous: you should only take an AP Physics C course after completing calculus. In addition, if you’re pursuing a degree in physics or engineering, the Physics C courses are strongly recommended. Here’s a breakdown on the course content and exam structure for each test:

**Physics 1: Algebra-Based Content**

- Kinematics
- Dynamics
- Circular Motion and Gravitation
- Energy
- Momentum
- Simple Harmonic Motion
- Torque and Rotational Motion
