Six Ideas That
About Six Ideas That Shaped Physics (and this website)
Six Ideas That Shaped Physics is a complete package of course material that includes a six-volume textbook (available in both printed and ebook form) and a rich assortment of web-based supporting material accessible through this website. Six Ideas grew out of the 1987-1995 Introductory University Physics Project (IUPP), an NSF-funded project to revitalize the two-semester calculus-based introductory physics course (read more history…). The course materials therefore reflect more than a quarter-century of focused experimentation and development with the goal of providing instructors what they need to create an active, student-centered classroom that excites students and fully prepares them for appreciating the role of physics in the 21st century.
