Standards for (most of) the year

Apart from being deep in accreditation report-writing, I'm, like everyone else, deep in class prep. In case anyone's interested, here are my standards for the first two terms for Physics and Honors Physics and the whole year for AP Physics/Mechanics.

The links are to PDFs of the standards; there's a brief synopsis of the course content for each course so that you know what you're getting.

Physics (my own text - motion, then oscillations (not much force analysis), waves, sound, shadows, astro, optics)
Honors Physics (Mechanics for these terms, pretty modelly, using Giancoli as the text (read: problem bank), but probably Knight next year)
AP Physics (First half of Matter and Interactions)
