About the course

Kinematics is a branch of mechanics that describes the motion of objects without introducing forces just yet. In this unit, we will explore our first set of equations for AP Physics 1 that describe an object’s motion.

AP Physics 1 is an algebra-based, introduction to college-level physics courses. The framework of this course is organized into 10 commonly taught units of study. Each unit contains information that needs to be understood in order to prepare students for taking the AP Physics exam given by College Board AP.

Hey everyone, my name is Amber!

I am currently serving as a Teaching and Research Assistant at the University of Kentucky while pursuing my Ph.D in Astrophysics. I have completed my M.S in Physics at the University of Kentucky and B.S. in Mathematics at Nicholls State University in Louisiana. Outside of school I enjoy various outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, rock climbing, and soccer. During my undergraduate career I played Division I NCAA Women's Soccer.

I am enthusiastic about tutoring and learning!
