The MIT Collection on Curriki (available here) contains 49 relevant topics in Calculus, Physics, Chemistry and Biology. Most of the material is selected to support the College Board Advanced Placement Program offering college-level examinations to high school students.
The content has been selected from freshman-level courses at MIT specifically to support the needs of high school students interested in the Advanced Placement exams for Calculus, Physics and Biology. There are 21 calculus topics, 18 physics subject areas, 9 areas of biology and 1 chemistry lab section.
Examples of topics included are:
- Calculus – Computation of Derivatives
- Physics – Waves
- Biology – Heredity
“The idea is simple: to publish all of our course materials online and make them widely available to everyone.”
Dick K.P. Yue, Professor, MIT School of Engineering
