The High School Physics Course contains 98 self-grading microlearning lessons that you can use instantly in your Learning Management System (LMS).

High School Physics covers the scope and sequence requirements of a typical one-year physics course. This course provides comprehensive coverage of physical concepts, quantitative examples and skills, and interesting applications. High School Physics has been designed to meet and exceed the requirements of the relevant Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS), while allowing significant flexibility for instructors.

Qualified and experienced Texas faculty were involved throughout the development process to ensure effectiveness and usability. Reviewers considered each resource’s clarity, accuracy, student support, assessment rigor and appropriateness, alignment to TEKS, and overall quality. The writers and reviewers also considered common course issues, effective teaching strategies, and student engagement to provide instructors and students with useful, supportive content and drive effective learning experiences.


High School Physics presents physical laws, research, concepts, and skills in a logical and engaging progression that should be familiar to most physics faculty. The course begins with a general introduction to physics and scientific processes, which is followed by several modules on motion and Newton’s laws. After mechanics, the students will move through thermodynamics, waves and sound, and light and optics. Electricity and magnetism and nuclear physics complete the course, however you can use each lesson in whatever order you choose.
