Peter Apps earned his BS and MSEd in Adolescent Education from SUNY Brockport. In the classroom almost 15 years, Mr. Apps currently teaches Advanced Placement and Regents Physics, and 8th Grade General Science at York Central School. He also is an adjunct professor at Genesee Community College's Accelerated College Enrollment and has been recognized by New York State as a Master Teacher.
How hard will this AP Physics C:E&M class be and what can students expect from the workload?
This course isn't the easiest of the APs, and there's a lot of calculus involved. Plan on doing a couple of problems from each set (at least) and use your TAs! We'll also have some virtual labs to complete as projects. Don't skip these, because one of the FRQs on the exam WILL be experimental based. The physics labs are crucial for foundational understanding of E&M concepts.
Does the course include AP Physics C tutoring?
There's weekly live lectures, 1-on-1 support from TAs, essay & writing help from real exam readers, and a 24/7 live chat community for peer-to-peer tutoring. 15 weeks for about how much it costs for a couple hours of online tutoring.
How much does it cost to take Physics C AP online?
Through Fiveable, an online AP Physics C course costs only $55 and will cover the entire E&M curriculum in 1 semester.
Describe the teacher's classroom experience with teaching AP Physics C: E&M
15 years as a high school educator teaching, with 8 years in the classroom teaching physics (Regents Level (NYS), AP-1, AP C: Mech & EM)
What is your experience with remote learning and online classes?
I live streamed review classes last year with Fiveable, and ran the Cram Session for AP Physics 1 (and of course, ran online high school classes remotely from March—June)
What advice do you have for homeschool and self study students?
Set a schedule and stick with it! Communicate proactively if you are struggling and ask your household to support you in keeping to the course schedule.
For students who haven't decided whether taking this course online is worth it, what would you say to them?
AP Phys C: E&M would replace your 2nd semester physics class at most colleges. This class is usually required for most STEM majors, so if you're interested in majoring in a STEM field, it would make a lot of sense to get this course out of the way!
