PROJECT-BASED LEARNING

Students are motivated to learn in the context of highly engaging and authentic “real-world” projects that guide instruction, serve to organize meaningful learning, and promote the excitement and joy of learning.

ACTIVE LEARNING

Students actively engage in science and engineering practices and mathematical reasoning to deepen their understanding of core ideas. Students work together to define problems, conduct investigations, make models, use computational thinking, write explanations, and discuss and present findings.

TECHNOLOGY-ENHANCED LEARNING

Our 21st century technology is designed to support a seamless implementation of our curricula. It includes all hands-on equipment needed for the classroom and top-of-the-line electronic books, probes, and mobile devices.

TOTAL SUPPORT

We are committed to providing comprehensive support services for districts implementing our programs. From face-to-face workshops to our ever-expanding Cyber professional-development resources, we can tailor-fit a complete solution to your needs.

Introduction

Active Physics® is based on the research on how students learn—encapsulated in the 7E Instructional Model (elicit, engage, explore, explain, elaborate, extend, evaluate). As a result, Active Physics provides ALL students with a deep and memorable learning experience.

Active Physics® students are motivated to learn.
Students are motivated to learn science in the context of highly engaging and authentic “real-world” projects that guide instruction and serve to organize their learning. Research shows that the project-based approach promotes excitement and meaningful learning for ALL students.

Active Physics® students learn like scientists.
The science and engineering practices, as described in A Framework for K-12 Science Education, are integrated throughout the curriculum. Students engage with complex situations and collaborate on what they need to learn in order to manage the situation effectively.

Active Physics® is for ALL students.
The Active Physics® Plus feature in the student edition allows teachers to customize the program for students who want or need more mathematics, depth, concepts, or explorations.  A comprehensive Teacher’s Edition and Resources provide full support for differentiated instruction with augmentations, accommodations, and suggestions for the English Language Learner.
