Advanced Physics through Inquiry 2

Product Code: PS-2849


PASCO’s Advanced Physics through Inquiry 2 helps you prepare your students for the rigors of the AP* Physics 2 lab. Each lab is presented in three ways, allowing you to decide what level of inquiry is appropriate:

1) Structured

2) Guided Inquiry

3) Student Designed

This lab manual covers the new College Board Learning Objectives with data analysis and assessment questions designed to prepare students for the AP Physics 2 exam.

Each lab includes a teachers resource section with College Board Correlations, pre-lab discussion and questions, procedural overview, tips, and sample data, assessment and synthesis questions. The manual includes both the printed version and a CD copy with teacher tips, a PDF of teacher version, and an editable Word student version.

Instruction videos guide students through use of lab equipment.
