Highlights for High School (MIT)
Massachusetts Institute of Technology's free Open Courseware now offers Highlights for High School which provides resources to improve science, technology, engineering and math instruction at the high school level. Highlights for High School features more than 2,600 video and audio clips, animations, lecture notes and assignments taken from actual MIT courses, and categorizes them to match the Advanced Placement physics, biology and calculus curricula. Demonstrations, simulations, animations and videos give educators engaging ways to present STEM concepts, while videos illustrate MIT's hands-on approach to the teaching of these subjects. Highlights for High School organizes the course materials currently featured on OCW—including syllabi, lecture notes, assignments and exams—into a format that is more accessible to high school students and teachers. All materials are available free of charge.
