  Abstract: Advanced Placement┬« Physics 1, 2, and C are designed to provide rigorous college-level content to high school students. Ongoing collaboration between college and high school faculty, facilitated by the College Board, is instrumental to the success and integrity of the AP Program. Participation can be through course and assessment design, exam development, scoring and analysis, and delivery of high-quality professional development. This shift from Physics B to Physics 1,2 is an exciting time to be involved with the AP program. Each learning objective combines specific physics content knowledge with one of seven foundational science practices, and students will engage in hands-on explorations of physics and inquiry labs. Being part of the development process for the courses provides a rare opportunity to have a national-level impact on physics education. This poster presents an overview of the various roles that high school and college faculty can play in this important program.
