A Message from Author Stephen Fuerderer AP Physics 1 Cover

When writing the new Worktext we aimed for 100% alignment to AP Physics 1. What I like is how the write-in textbook has everything in one place – the content, practice problems, labs, place for students to do their work, highlight, write in it, etc.  Written in very friendly (age appropriate) reading level, without compromising content and higher order thinking.  The digital components includes online quizzes, study notes, e-versions of the text and the Teacher’s section includes NEW chapter tests and ample inquiry style laboratory activities requiring minimal equipment which you to use in your class,
