MIT compiled all their open courseware material that is appropriate for use by high school teachers of college-bound students at this site. For teachers the goal is to make it easy for you to find resources you can use to inspire your students. MIT OpenCourseware has selected a range of materials to help you: (1) Show science demonstrations by MIT faculty in your classroom. (2) Provide alternate explanations to reinforce key concepts. (3) Guide students to additional homework problems and exam examples. (4) Add to your knowledge. You can use this site to help your students: Understand concepts by watching video demonstrations or study for AP exams. Furthermore they can sample the kind of work they'll be doing in college.
