The College Board has released new curriculum resources for each of the four AP Physics courses:

  • Course and Exam Description (CED) (Fig. 1)

  • AP Classroom, a digital platform.

What follows is a summary of the most relevant elements of these new resources.

The Curriculum and Exam Descriptions are downloadable from AP Central,2 and teachers can order a free-of-charge hardcopy CED binder with a Course at a Glance poster. Each Course and Exam Description includes not only the curriculum framework, but also detailed unit guides and instructional strategies.
