If you will also be taking the Physics C: Electricity and Magnetism **exam**, please listen carefully to these instructions before we take a 10-minute break. Please put all of your calculators under your chair. Your calculators and all items you placed under your chair at the beginning of this **exam** must stay there, and you are not permitted to open or access them in any way. You are not allowed to consult teachers, other students, notes, or textbooks during the break. You may not make phone calls, send text messages, check email, use a social networking site, or access any electronic or communication device. If you do not follow these rules, your score will be canceled. Are there any questions? . . .

You must complete the answer sheet using a No. 2 pencil only. Mark all of your responses beginning on page 2 of your answer sheet, one response per question. Completely fill in the circles. If you need to erase, do so carefully and completely. No credit will be given for anything written in the **exam** booklet. Scratch paper is not allowed, but you may use the margins or any blank space in the **exam** booklet for scratch work. Rulers and straightedges may be used for the entire **exam**, but calculators are not allowed for Section I. Please put all of your calculators under your chair. Are there any questions? . . .

3. Implicit statements of concepts normally receive credit. For example, if the use of an equation expressing a particular concept is worth 1 point, and a student’s solution contains the application of that equation to the problem but the student does not write the basic equation, the point is still awarded. However, when students are asked to derive an expression, it is normally expected that they will begin by writing one or more fundamental equations, such as those given on the **AP** Physics **Exam** equation sheets. For a description of the use of such terms as “derive” and “calculate” on the exams, and what is expected for each, see “The Free-Response Sections — Student Presentation” in the **AP** Physics Course Description .

Taking this **practice** **exam** should provide students with an idea of their general areas of strengths and weaknesses in preparing for the actual **AP** **Exam**. Because this **AP** Physics C: Mechanics **Practice** **Exam** has never been administered as an operational **AP** **Exam**, statistical data are not available for calculating potential raw scores or conversions into **AP** grades.

4. Implicit statements of concepts normally receive credit. For example, if use of the equation expressing a particular concept is worth one point, and a student’s solution embeds the application of that equation to the problem in other work, the point is still awarded. However, when students are asked to derive an expression it is normally expected that they will begin by writing one or more fundamental equations, such as those given on the **exam** equation sheet. For a description of the use of such terms as “derive” and “calculate” on the exams, and what is expected for each, see “The Free-Response SectionsStudent Presentation” in the **AP** Physics; Physics C: Mechanics, Physics C: Electricity and Magnetism Course Description or “Terms Defined” in the **AP** Physics 1: Algebra-Based and **AP** Physics 2: Algebra-Based Course and **Exam** Description.

There are also certain biases that may have detracted from greater student success on the **AP** Calculus AB **exam**. During the eight years of the remediation implementation, the impact of Common Core at the elementary level may have had a negative impact on students’ level of understanding on basic concepts, which would lead to gaps in the mathematical foundation that students develop. These gaps follow the student to high school and may detract from the overall understanding of concepts in prerequisite classes for Calculus as well as in the Calculus class itself. During the last five years of this study the seat time that students had in class dropped by ten minutes per school day, or for a cumulative amount of about two weeks of class time. Less time in class means less time to understand the material presented. Along with the remediation program, these positive and negative biases must be looked at as possible factors that may affect the change in success for the group of students over the eight years of this study.

people learn indicates that providing multiple contexts to which major ideas apply facilitates transfer; this allows students to bundle knowledge in memory together with the multiple contexts to which it applies. Students should also be able to recognize seemingly appropriate contexts to which major concepts and ideas do not apply. After learning various conservation laws in the context of mechanics, students should be able to describe what the concept of conservation means in physics and extend the idea to other contexts. For example, what might conservation of energy mean at high-energy scales with particle collisions, where Einstein’s mass–energy equivalence plays a major role? What does conservation of energy mean when constructing or evaluating arguments about global warming? Another context in which students may apply ideas from physics across vast spatial and time scales is the origin of human life on Earth coupled with the notion of extraterrestrial intelligent life. If one views the age of the Earth in analogy to a year of time (see Ritger & Cummins, 1991) with the Earth formed on January 1, then life began on Earth around April 5; multicellular organisms appeared on November 6; mammals appeared on December 23. Perhaps most amazingly, humans appeared on December 31 just 28 minutes before midnight. What are the implications of this for seeking intelligent life outside our solar system? What is a reasonable estimate of the probability of finding intelligent life on an earthlike planet that scientists might discover through astronomical observations, and how does one go about making those estimates? Although students are not expected to answer these very complex questions after a single **AP** science course, they should be able to talk intelligently about them using the concepts they learned.
