Hello, AP Physics 1 student. You have come to the right place! Here is the information about your summer assignment. It consists of three tasks:


Task #1: Establish an account with MasteringPhysics and link your account to our AP Physics 1 course. Mastering What?? MasteringPhysics! MP is an online homework site maintained by the publisher of our text book. You will be working on many assignments on MP. In fact all of your summer assignments are associated with MP. Some of you will come to like MP. Some of you will not. The instructions for establishing an account are located HERE. The process takes about 10 minutes. Please follow the step-by-step instructions carefully. Email me if you have any problems establishing your account. It would be a good idea to do this before the end of the current school year so I can work with you to resolve any problems that may crop up.

Task #2: Complete Summer Assignment #1: Introduction to MasteringPhysics. The purpose of this assignment is to familiarize you with the MasteringPhysics site and the format of the different types of questions you will see on MP. This assignment should take about 45 minutes to an hour. 

Task #3: Complete Summer Assignment #2: Sections 1.1, 1.2 & 1.3. Please carefully read through Sections 1.1 through 1.3 of the online textbook before working on this assignment. The online textbook is available on MP. The purpose of this assignment is to get you thinking about MOTION, which is an important topic in the study of physics. 

Have a great, great summer. And remember, learning physics is so much better and more important than reading some novel for another AP class!  See you in a few weeks!!!
