Abstract

High quality high school physics curriculum can be hard to find, and is usually too easy and dry to be engaging for the modern high school student. In this curriculum I have prepared material that includes the rigor of an introductory college physics course, and along with material that has stories, humor, and recurring characters to maintain the attention of the average high school student. The material has been carefully prepared so as to maximize the students learning including formatted sheets for each homework assignment that help provide the student with structure to guide them in their discovery of physics. This contains materials for teaching both a one year ordinary rigorous physics course, and a two year rigorous honors physics course, including all homework assignments and exams.
