Understanding electromagnetic forces permits understanding the internal properties of everyday objects which in turn is critical to understanding the forces that act between objects; it is also one of nature’s four fundamental forces. As the name suggests, an understanding of Electricity and Magnetism themselves are necessary to know how they behave together. Electricity and magnetism are core topics in any physics experience. This course is a one-semester course, offered only in the 2nd semester, adhering to College Board’s requirements for AP credit in their AP Physics C Electricity and Magnetism (E&M) course. VPython programming will be included for process animation (now done in progressive AP Physics courses, and in typical college Introductory Physics courses). Students must be recommended for AP Physics C Mechanics and must be concurrently enrolled in either Physics 1 or AP Physics Mechanics. No prior programming experience is required.
