Will you be teaching AP Physics 1 next school year? (Or did you teach your Honors Physics class as AP Physics 1 this year?) If so, shoot me an e-mail to let me know.

Those of you who have been following my blog for years will not be surprised to learn I am up to my neck in AP Physics 1 and 2 stuff.  No, I don’t teach it – I’m a university professor.  But I’m trying to compile as much information as I can about the status of the AP Physics 1 and 2 project.  I am trying to monitor adoption at colleges and universities through my roles at the American Physical Society.  I’m also trying to find out who is teaching AP Physics 1 and 2 in the fall in Florida.  One teacher who has already been in touch with me did as the College Board recommended and turned this year’s Honors Physics classes into AP Physics 1 classes so that her students could take AP Physics 2 next year and both exams (1 and 2) in May of 2015.

The Florida Department of Education has to consider whether AP Physics 1 and 2 should be awarded credit for the two-semester algebra-based physics sequence at the state’s public colleges and universities, and it has not yet done so.  I’ll keep you posted on progress there.
