Active Physics
Active Physics is a different species of physics course. It has the mechanics, optics, and electricity you anticipate, but not where you expect to find them. In a traditional physics course, we teach forces in the fall, waves in the winter, and solenoids in the spring. In Active Physics, students are introduced to physics concepts on a need-to-know basis as they explore issues in Communication, Home, Light Up My Life, Medicine, Predictions, Sports, and Transportation. Supported during its development by the National Science Foundation, this link is to the publishers website. Correlations of Active Physics materials to national and state standards are available on the website.
