This page contains resource materials for Mr. T. Wayne's honors and AP-B physics classes. The documents contained on this web site are either in "html" format for viewing directly with a web browser or in "Acrobat Reader" file format, "pdf." The "Acrobat" files can be downloaded and printed. The online tests use a language called "Java." Check below to see if "Java" is enabled on your browser.

Humbly, I must admit this site is a "work in progress" and may contain a few typos and misdirected links. I'm endeavoring to eliminate any and all these errors. Please, help me by telling me in class of any problems you may encounter with this site.
