AP Physics B

The material at this website are for an AP-B level physics course as part of the STEM-RIDE partnership for teaching advanced STEM classes through distance education. STEM-RIDE is a partnership between Tarleton State University and six rural, smaller (1A to 3A) North Texas High Schools (Alvarado, Early, Glen Rose, Maypearl, Santo, and Stephenville). For more information about the project consult the STEM-RIDE website. 

This particular course was a proof-in-concept course taught by Dr. Daniel K. Marble of the Tarleton State University Physics Program in AY2013-2014 and funded by the Sid Richardson Foundation. 

All physics curriculum materials on this site were developed by Dr. Daniel K. Marble and Christopher Brian Marble and are copyrighted. Materials cannot be used or reproduced without the authors' permission.
