The High School Physics Program

A Three Step Approach

Conceptual Physics features and the concepts-before-computation approach pioneered by Paul Hewett. The program provides comprehensive content and a three-step learning cycle that builds conceptual understanding and offers computational reinforcement.

1: Spark Interest

• Ignite your students' interest with powerful examples that connect to their lives
• Simple hands-on activities bring physics concepts to life

2: Expand Understanding

• Engaging, dynamic text
• Vivid demonstrations

• Examples reinforce understanding to help students think critically
• Ancillaries that set the stage for learning, helping you spend less time planning and more time doing what you love—teaching physics!

3: Put Concepts to Work

The third step of the conceptual learning process is to apply concepts through laboratory work, problem solving, and discussion of critical-thinking questions. It is this step that fully integrates physics concepts and allows true learning
