These units—by design—address only the most challenging concepts within the AP® Physics 1 curriculum framework. Thus, you will need foundational/ prerequisite knowledge in Physics 1 to work through these units. Davidson Next modules are designed for blended learning in AP classrooms, but can also be used by AP students independently as supplementary help and exam review.
