Welcome to IB/AP Physics at St. Paul Central High School.

Physics relates to the study of matter and how it interacts, starting at the subatomic level and applying to everything else up to the structure of the entire universe.

Classes offered at Central include four advanced level course sequences:   IB SL Physics, leading to the IB SL Physics exam, AP Physics 1, leading to the AP Physics 1 exam, IB HL Physics, which culminates with the IB HL Physics exam, and AP Physics C  which leads to the AP C level Physics exam.   These exams are held in early/mid May each year.

Class information and schedules are included on the right for each class. Current and past assignments are also included, as well as pdf/doc versions of homework and laboratory assignments.
