Learning List recently reviewed WileyPLUS’s comprehensive, advanced high school physics course that includes online and print materials. Instruction focuses on developing students’ conceptual understanding, problem solving skills, and knowledge of the real-world application of physics concepts. Content supports instruction in Advanced Placement (AP) Physics courses. A first-year physics course and Algebra 2 are recommended as prerequisites.

The Physics course begins with a review of key math concepts and skills (e.g., symbolic manipulation, the quadratic formula), and then addresses physics concepts (e.g., force, momentum, energy, optics) with a focus on problem solving and the examination of real-world phenomena through the lens of physics.

The course has frequent example problems with complete solutions. Textboxes highlight and review the math skills needed to solve problems.  Example problems are followed by two or more similar practice exercises for students to solve independently. Some practice problems include “Chalkboard Video” tutorials that provide step-by-step guidance in solving problems and discuss common misconceptions and mistakes.  Other problems are accompanied by “Video Help” or “Guided Online” (GO) tutorials to facilitate solutions.

Assessment resources include a downloadable test bank of multiple choice questions and answer key for each chapter. Test bank items are editable and indexed by chapter section and level of difficulty.

[Source: Wiley Publishing]

Learning List recently reviewed WileyPLUS’s The Molecular Nature of Matter, which is a comprehensive, advanced high school chemistry course. Resources include online and print materials. Instruction focuses on developing students’ conceptual understanding, problem solving skills, and knowledge of the real-world application of chemistry concepts. Content supports instruction in Advanced Placement (AP) Chemistry courses. A first-year chemistry course is recommended as a prerequisite.

The Molecular Nature of Matter begins with a short history of chemistry that provides a foundation for understanding the course’s approach to molecules and chemical reactions. Subsequent chapters address the factual and conceptual content that forms the basis for developing theoretical models in chemistry.  Chapters include “Chem FAQ” interactive slide shows that address common student questions (e.g., “What is an atomic mass unit?”). Some chapters include video demonstrations of chemistry concepts and/or links to PhET interactive simulations hosted by the University of Colorado.

Course resources facilitate teacher-led instruction and student self-study, and the program includes ORION online adaptive study and practice software, which offers individualized instruction. Students complete a diagnostic assessment that evaluates their understanding of chapter content by objective and prescribes customized “Study” and “Practice” activities tailored to their individual learning needs. The Study feature of the program recommends sections of the e-text for students to read or review. Practice uses adaptive software to customize practice problems for each student.

New Review: Wiley Publishing Courses that Support the Early Transcendental Approach to Calculus Instruction: Calculus: Early Transcendentals and Calculus: Early Transcendentals Single Variable

Anton_Calc10_ET.pdf

[Source: Wiley Publishing]

Learning List recently reviewed two Wiley Publishing courses that support the early transcendental approach to calculus instruction: Calculus: Early Transcendentals and Calculus: Early Transcendentals Single Variable. Both are comprehensive resources written by the team of authors led by Howard Anton that support instruction in Advanced Placement (AP) Calculus AB and AP Calculus BC courses. They are available in print and eBook formats; additional online instructional materials are available from Wiley. Additional course resources are available at www.howardanton.com and using the WileyPLUS learning management system (LMS).

Calculus: Early Transcendentals presents instruction in 16 chapters, including a “Chapter 0: Before Calculus” that reviews functions students have likely encountered in algebra and other math courses (e.g., absolute value functions, piecewise functions). Calculus: Early Transcendentals Single Variable presents the same content that is included in Calculus: Early Transcendentals chapters 0-10, which addresses single variable calculus.

Both courses support instruction in teacher-led and student self-study learning environments and emphasize the application of calculus to real-world problems. Instruction includes biographical information about important figures in the development of calculus (e.g., Leonhard Euler) and frequent example problems with step-by-step solutions.

Chapters end with “Making Connections” problems that require students to combine concepts and strategies presented in the chapter to solve problems. A set of icons indicates when students will need to use a graphing calculator or a computer algebra system (e.g., Maple) to solve problems. The course does not include materials, question sets, or practice tests that specifically address preparation for AP exams.
