Abstract Title: An Overview of the New AP Physics Lab Guide
Abstract: The new AP Physics 1 and 2 Courses focus on deep, conceptual understanding and inquiry-based learning through labs.  At least 25% of course time should be spent on hands-on laboratory work, and the majority of that should be guided or open inquiry.  To support teachers in this endeavor, the College Board has published a document titled "AP Physics 1 and 2 Inquiry-Based Lab Investigations: A Teacher's Manual."  This talk will highlight the development, intent and content of this lab manual.
Abstract Type: Symposium Talk
