PUF’s AP Physics 1 is an algebra-based, introductory college-level physics class that will prepare you to excel not only in school but also in CollegeBoard's AP Physics I examination. Students cultivate their understanding of physics through inquiry-based investigations as they explore the topics of kinematics, dynamics, circular motion and gravitation, energy, momentum, simple harmonic motion, torque and rotational motion, electric charge and electric force, DC circuits, and mechanical waves and sound. By confronting complex physical situations and scenarios, the class enables you to develop the ability to reason about physical phenomena using important science practices, such as explaining relationships, applying and justifying the use of mathematical routines, designing experiments, analyzing data, and making connections across multiple topics within the course. Prerequisites: Algebra

By completing this award-winning course and earning the AP Physics Certificate of Achievement, you can showcase your strengths and highlight how you have challenged yourself beyond school curriculum and requirements, even during the summer break! Students in the class will build a strong foundational knowledge of the subject matter as they learn difficult concepts through easy-to-understand lessons and practice with complex word problems. Through a special link, we will invite students for live whiteboard interactive lessons, interactive problem-solving and group work, and accessing the practice problem sets once their registration is complete. Weekly assessments, including short quizzes and MCQ/Essay exams built within our class portal, help our students assess their performance under the AP Exam scenario. While the class covers the AP curriculum, it is also aligned with the national NGSS science standards and school curriculums, thereby preparing students to do very well on their school quizzes and exams, too. This class ensures students are on track for mastering the necessary skills (critical thinking and quantitative analysis) to stay ahead in their class and perform well on their AP test for an impressive College Application. A high score in the AP Physics 1 Exam gives college credit for 1st semester College Physics Course, thus saving you time and money on College courses in the future.

Our award-winning, invigorating, and highly acclaimed instructional approach makes our courses very unique and different from all other programs and institutions.
Our Courses are
  • Aligned with the national Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), Common Core Mathematics Standards, CSTA Computer Science Standards, and school curriculums.
  • Aligned with the UC’s a-g approved curriculum.
  • Taught by our expert and dynamic, highly qualified University professors with Engineering Degrees and Teaching Credentials, and lead Industry engineers (UC Berkeley alumni) with decades of teaching expertise and 4.0s throughout their academic journeys.
  • Especially designed to be taken by students before the upcoming school year in order to jump ahead of their Class and have a first look at the concepts, mastering the fundamentals of the subject.
  • Designed to enhance our students' critical thinking skills as well as quantitative and analytical skills so that our students become adept and ready to tackle the difficult load of the course.
  • Live and Interactive, with engaging lectures and problem solving sessions in small sections where students receive 1-on-1 personalized attention from the professor.
  • Designed to benefit all students including CP, Regular, Honors, AP, Self-Study, and Homeschool.
  • Rigorous and Thorough, with in-class problem solving and step-by-step guidance from the professor as well as collaborative practice sessions with their coursemates to further strengthen the concepts and boost their confidence in becoming a high achiever in the subject.
  • Well-designed, with proven strategies that give our students an edge in the increasingly competitive college admissions process.
  • Well-appreciated by our past students and their parents for helping them feel very comfortable with the course material and achieve high grades during the school year.
Most students will enroll in more than one course.

PUF students have gained admission to the country’s most selective colleges, including UC Berkeley, Stanford, MIT, and the Ivy League, and land internships with top companies, including Google, Apple, Adobe, and HPE. And our instructors are eager to help you too! Come join our program!
