Includes programming for the Xbox Kinect. The textbook and BlueJ development environment are specifically designed to make learning how to program with classes and objects easier. Master the logic of writing methods with CodingBat.com AP Computer Science The Central Idea
Physics is the study of nature at the most fundamental level.
People build airplanes, cell phones, tall buildings, and other "miracles" of modern civilization by combining the insights from many fundamental experiments.
We try to eliminate as much complication as possible to arrive at an understanding of the essence of how things work, usually in terms of simple mathematical equations, such as speed is distance divided by time.
The results of simple experiments allow us to predict the outcomes of any similar situation. Forces and Motion
The world is always changing. In physics, change is described by the motion of objects using ideas of position, speed and acceleration.
Force is a push or pull on an object and causes acceleration. Linking force to motion is a powerful way to understand and predict how objects will behave.
For example, NASA engineers can design a rocket that will carry astronauts to the moon and back. They have to take into account many things-the motion of the earth, the motion of the moon, the energy of the rocket fuel, the mass of the rocket, and so on. We will learn many of the ideas used by NASA. Energy and Momentum
Energy is a force applied to an object for some distance, while momentum is a force applied to an object for some time. Sometimes it is easier to solve a problem using energy or momentum rather than force.
Conservation principles are at the heart of the philosophy of physics. The symmetries of space and time are directly related to the conservation of momentum and energy in any physical process.

On earth, all energy can be traced back to the sun. For example, the energy in gasoline is stored sunlight energy. It is thought-provoking to realize that in one hour, more sunlight energy reaches the earth than the energy used by all people in a year. Thermodynamics
The most prevalent way of using energy to make changes in the world is by converting heat into work-that is, applying a force over some distance, such as lifting a steel I-beam into place to construct a skyscraper.
There are consequences to burning fossil fuels to generate the heat that is used to do work. Are there viable alternatives? What would it take to change the way we use energy to do work? Sound and Light
When particles of matter are set in motion, the energy of that motion is transferred to adjacent particles through collisions. A sound wave is that energy spreading through the particles of matter. We hear sound when the collisions reach our eardrums and make them vibrate. Sound can only travel through matter.
When particles of charge (e.g., electrons) are set in motion, the energy of that motion is transferred to adjacent charges by particles of light called photons. Photons can only travel through vacuum to another charge. Light is also modeled as a transverse electromagnetic wave. Electricity and Magnetism
All matter is composed of electrically charged particles constantly in motion. Motion of electric charge creates a magnetic field. Matter, then, is a complex arrangement of electrically and magnetically interacting particles (electrons, protons, and neutrons).
Different types of materials can be made by arranging atoms in particular ways. Metals, plastics, animals, plants, rocks, water--all things--are made of a relatively few types of atoms. Chemistry Meets high school graduation requirements in physical laboratory science
