AP Physics Web Guide

by Dolores Gende
Parish Episcopal School
Dallas, Texas

Introduction
Web technology has become an increasingly significant educational resource for teachers and students. By providing means to create and share virtual educational environments, offering easy access to a wide array of resources, and allowing for communication beyond the classroom walls among colleagues and students, Web technology makes it possible to greatly improve the teacher's ability to develop additional ways that broaden the chances for more students to succeed.

The Web sites in the Physics Web Guide have been grouped according to the five major content areas of the Topic Outline in the Course Description as follows:

Additional Links
NIST Reference on Constants, Units, and Uncertainty
Official site of the National Institute of Standards and Technology. Contains information on the international system of units (SI), physical constants, and uncertainty in measurements.
