Interactive Lessons

All core instructional content is delivered through short, focused text, video, animations, and simulations.

  • Over 900 activities, videos, and simulations deliver instruction in class or allow students to review on their own.
  • Animations proceed step-by-step through each key idea and concept.
  • Hundreds of animations illustrate physics in action, allowing anticipation, replaying, and discussion.
  • Summary videos encapsulate the key ideas of each topic.
  • Professional audio accompanies all instruction providing support for all learners.

 

Simulations

Model physics

  • pause at any time to record data points
  • rerun using different starting values

Encourage collaborative Learning

Simulations include

  • driving a car through a 3D city to experiment with motion in two dimensions
  • dragging a test charge into a field and observing the direction and magnitude of force
  • recreating part of the Curies’ famous experiment on alpha particles
  • analyzing a substance using a mass spectrometer simulation 
  • exploring advanced topics such as rotational motion and angular momentum

Math Support

Quickchecks

  • embedded instructional videos provide real-time support
  • step-by-step support builds self-efficacy and problem-solving skills
  • generate new problems to ensure mastery
  • performance automatically recorded in teacher gradebook

Sample Problems

  • master educators explain solutions
  • each step rolls out at one at a time

Progress Monitoring

Quizboards at the end of each chapter provide formative review.
  • Hints provide instructional support
  • Immediate feedback for students

Virtual Labs

Brings to life concepts that can’t be demonstrated in most classrooms.

  • Complete instructions and simulations allow for electronic or print submission.
  • Students can complete virtual labs in class or as homework.
  • Grade virtual labs easily and effectively within the digital grade book.

Physical Labs and Demonstrations

Provide ample hands-on time for both students and instructors.

 

Lesson Plans

Lesson plans for each chapter contain
  • Essential Questions and Enduring Understandings for the chapter and lesson
  • explanations of all vocabulary terms
