Accelerated Physics — Course Document — 2023–2024

Accelerated Physics is a course at the Singapore American School that combines the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)and AP Physics 1. Although there is considerable overlap between the DCIs and content in AP Physics 1, the emphasis for the course is the NGSS. There is tension between between the NGSS and AP Physics 1; we have managed this tension through various methods.
