REVIEW
Highlights for High School is a rich resource for teachers and students. It provides free, open-source teaching and learning materials, including video lecture clips, lecture notes, practice problems, exams, and other resources from MITs introductory Physics, Biology, and Calculus courses, in addition to high school mini-courses that were developed by MIT students. Students can use the site to study for AP exams in Biology, Calculus, and Physics, apply what theyve learned to Build Stuff, Write Better, Save the World, view video demonstrations, explore the Labs, or view the competitions. Included is a section on introductory MIT courses where students can see what college courses are like. Teachers can use the resources to supplement the curriculum and inspire their students to become the next generation of engineers and scientists.
