I'm looking at the AP Mech C practice FRQ: https://apclassroom.collegeboard.org/29/question_bank/create/preview/item/1320757 On part c, the scoring rubric says "1 point is earned for [graphing] a pair of quantities that could be used to determine g  students must graph measured, not calculated quantities." Does this mean that graphing k∆x vs. Msinθ would not earn the point? If so, that would deviate from past AP Exams, would it not?

View File The AP Physics C Companion  Mechanics The AP* Physics C Companion  Mechanics is an easytoread companion to the AP Physics C: Mechanics curriculum, featuring 350 sample problems with fully workedout solutions. The AP Physics C Companion: Mechanics covers all major topics of the AP Physics C Mechanics course, including fundamentals of calculus, kinematics, dynamics, work, energy, momentum, rotation, oscillations, and gravity. The AP Physics C Companion is not a textbook replacement nor is it a strict testprep guide. It is a short, sweet roadmap to calculusbased physics courses such as AP Physics C: Mechanics and University Physics I, invaluable not just during test prep time, but throughout the entire course. The book lays out basic physics principles as quickly and clearly as possible, then demonstrates their application with hundreds of example problems solved in detail. Written by a physics teacher, The AP Physics C Companion correlates directly with the APlusPhysics.com website, where you will find free video minilessonsexplaining fundamental concepts, detailed study guides, a question and answer discussion board, and most importantly, a meeting place where you can interact with other students from around the world. This is a license for a digital download of the PDF version for use by one person only on up to five electronic devices. This document may not be printed, edited, redistributed, resold, or licensed to any other user. Once the file has been downloaded no refunds will be given.

After 11 years of teaching AP Physics, going through countless old exams and grading an equally innumerable number of student solutions to Free Response Questions, here are my suggestions to help future students out. AP® is a registered trademark of the College Board, which was not involved in the production of, and does not endorse, this product. Content Times: 0:21 #1) PreRead All Free Response Questions 0:56 #2) Write Legibly 1:47 #3) Organize Your Solutions and Label All Parts 2:32 #4) SHOW ALL YOUR WORK!! 4:06 #5) Do Not Break Forces in Free Body Diagrams into Components 4:41 #6) Answer Every Part of Every Problem 5:48 #7) Dimension Your Answers 6:11 #8) Leave Algebra Heavy Solutions for Later Next Video: [url="http://www.flippingphysics.com/reviewofallapphysicsctopicsmechanicsvideo1of2.html"]Review of all AP Physics C Mechanics Topics[/url]  Video 1 of 2 All of my inclass [url="http://www.FlippingPhysics.com/calculus.html"]AP Physics C lectures[/url] with Lecture Notes are at: [url="http://www.flippingphysics.com/give.html"]1¢/minute[/url] I know "equally innumerable number" perhaps seems illogical, however, it get's my point across, so deal with it. :) AP® is a registered trademark of the College Board, which was not involved in the production of, and does not endorse, this product. General Suggestion #9: Read Carefully. I made the video you are currently watching and then I proceeded to make video solutions to the 3 Free Response Questions of the 1998 AP Physics C Mechanics Exam and I learned a valuable lesson. I should have given 9 suggestions. I should have added a 9th suggestion: "Read Carefully." I find it quite funny that I didn't read carefully enough because (1) for years it is something I berated my students about and (2) it is something I did not do on the third free response question. You see, I didn't answer part (a) completely. I missed the small word "magnitude". I simply drew the forces in the Free Body Diagrams, however, I didn't explicitly solve for the Magnitudes of the Forces. All the magnitudes of the forces are in my solutions because I had to find each one to solve the rest of the problem; however, I didn't quite answer part (a) correctly. I don't know how the AP graders would grade my solution because all the physics is there, just not in the right places; however, I do feel they would not have given my solution full credit. So, please learn from my mistake and read the questions carefully. Don't have to eat humble pie, like me.
