  Abstract: The latest information released by College Board in regard to the new AP Physics B courses--Physics 1 and Physics 2 will be presented, including an overview of the curriculum framework along with the division of content between Physics 1 and Physics 2. Currently, Physics B is supposed to follow a preparatory course. Now, the material is divided up and deepened to make each year a stand-alone, rigorous, conceptual and problem-solving course. These courses can be placed flexibly into a school's curriculum; examples, alignment of the courses with college courses and possible ramifications for college credit will be discussed.
