AP PHYSICS C: MECHANICS: An Integrated Approach to Learning Physics by Kimal Honour Djam

This is a unique and comprehensive textbook inspired by the latest developments in physics education research; designed to help student confront head-on the common misconceptions in AP physics. It is aimed at students preparing to take the Advanced Placement Physics C Exam. The book is thoughtfully crafted to make the learning and teaching of AP Physics C Mechanics more meaningful and interactive. In addition to its clarity and rigor, the concepts are presented such as to promote deeper conceptual understanding of concepts and increase student confidence in problem-solving. According to experts and experienced AP Physics teachers across the country, problems [free response and multiple choice questions] in the book accurately mimic AP Physics questions and are strategically position throughout the book to foster student’s engagement with content. The structure of the book makes the learning of AP Physics engaging and demystify what hitherto seems a nightmare subject to students across the nation. This is a must-have book that guarantees student active engagement in the classroom; the understanding and application of the fundamental principles of physics as expected by the college board for AP Physics C students.

It provides students with a clear and logical presentation of physics concepts grounded in the inquiry and modeling approach to the learning of Physics. The table of content followed the AP Physics C syllabus and organized into teachable units. The format promotes team – based learning, peer to peer instructions and interactive engagement of physics concepts in the classroom. It is infused with tons of solvable, carefully constructed concept- based AP style problems and concept based multiple choice questions. At the end of every chapter is a sample AP Physics C practice exams design to simulate the AP test in terms of the number of questions, rigor, and strength. The book is organized such that the physics instruction is student-centered, team-based and inquiry in nature.

This book is not just a textbook but also a notebook, a review book; lab notebook infused beautify into a complete package. The concepts are broken down into models. Each model is presented so that students can investigate the models and develop the physical laws that govern them. These inquiry-based investigations are followed by AP style problems designed to foster collaborative group problem solving amongst students.
