Physics Unit 17 - DC Circuits
High School, College, and AP Physics 1
DC Circuits is a major unit within Physics and is continuing the build upon Electricity. We cover a ton of ground in this course and get into some pretty neat electrical setups. We will cover with great detail series and parallel circuits, combination circuits, and advanced Kirchhoff's Circuits. The content is delivered both through highly conceptual lessons as well as detailed and organized quantitative approaches.
I find my students often find Electrical Circuits as a fun and refreshing look at the real world around us. In the beginning it may not seem all that fascinating to wire up a light-bulb. When you actually start to understand how the circuits work and how to control them better you will notice how interesting this world becomes!
For the AP students out there this course marks the final course within AP Physics 1. You will also find this content within AP Physics 2 as well.

Corey Mousseau is a highly qualified classroom science teacher in New York State. He has been teaching physics and related courses in NY State for over 15 years.
Physics is often overwhelming for many students. Over the years Corey has mastered the art of exciting students into falling in love with this wonderful field of science. Through a blend of conceptual understanding, demonstrations, and quantitative analysis Corey has found the correct formula for engaging individuals into highly successful physics students.
Corey holds a degree in secondary education in physics as well as a master's degree in integrating technology in the classroom. He a high school Cross Country Coach, a Science Olympiad Coach, and a New York State Master Teacher. Corey has a lovely wife, two young boys, and teachers at Plattsburgh High School in upstate NY.
While at Plattsburgh High School (PHS) Corey has had the opportunity to teach many different courses which have all had a focus on excellence, rigor, and mastery.
Courses Corey currently teaches during the traditional school day:
- AP Physics 1
- AP Physics 2
- NY State Regents Physics
- AP Physics C: Mechanics
- Robotics 1
- Robotics 2
- Science Olympiad
Corey has been a dedicated science teacher since he was 22 years old and has influenced countless students along the way. His students show him respect, admiration, and commitment and he provides them with the same. Ask any student at PHS - Mr. Mousseau cares and is more than willing to help you become the strongest physics student you can.
