    High School Physics is designed as a two-semester course for third- or fourth-year high school students. Topics include motion, Newton’s laws, universal gravitation, thermal physics, optics, electromagnetism, and introductory relativity and quantum physics. High School science courses include strategies for dealing with common misconceptions, based on information gathered from Uncovering Student Ideas in Science by Page Keeley and Joyce Tugel, Project 2061, and the National Science Education Standards. Courses integrate questioning strategies and additional structuring of the learning experience guided by the Model Instruction Program started by David Hestenes and the American Modeling Teachers Association. Courses include original reading passages with instruction in reading comprehension for scientific topics.
