The College Board has undertaken a redesign of the Advance Placement (AP) science courses to improve the quality of teaching and learning in the nation's high schools. The Physics Redesign has focused on the AP Physics B course, the equivalent of the algebra-based introductory college physics course. This talk will focus on the background to this undertaking, the process that has been followed, and the current status of the redesign. Future steps in the process and the time frame for deployment of the redesigned course will be discussed.
