AP Physics
Physics could be described as an active sport. Like most subjects in math and science, you can't learn it by being passive. Physics demands participation ... and practice. Like any sport, to be good in physics you must practice.
Physics can also be described as a quantitative science. Concepts like speed, acceleration, force, momentum and energy can be described in words; but they can also be described by mathematical formulas. Many concepts in physics are mathematical quantities which can be measured, calculated and quantitatively related to other measurable quantities. While physics is considerably more than mathematics, it is most certainly understood more fully when the mathematics associated with the concepts is explored and understood.
