AP Physics and AP US History Changes

College Board has released the new AP Physics and AP U.S. History which "will impact more than 18,000 educators and 500,000 students in more than 12,000 schools worldwide. Teachers will implement the redesigned courses fall 2014, and the redesigned exams will be administered spring 2015."

All a part of the growing trend of going much deeper into a select group of content instead of a mile wide - just like Common Core. 

National Math and Science programs have been fully updated already for the new content in both our Pre-AP teacher training and our AP programs.  

What gets tested is what gets taught and these are dramatic changes in what will be taught.
