10 High School Physics and Physical Science Text Books
Here are 10 excellent and well written high school Physics and Physical Science text books that teach
and demonstrate many topics and areas. These all have nicely illustrated graphics and images, along
with internet links to supplemental content. Physics is the study of the world around us. In a sense we
are more qualified to do physics than any other science. From the day we are born we study the things
around us in an effort to understand how they work and relate to each other. Learning how to catch or
throw a ball is a physics undertaking for example. The best approach to physics is to relate everything
you learn to things you have already noticed in your everyday life. We attempt to describe things
through simple rules and mathematics, which is merely the language we use. You can start with asking
a simple question like ”Why is the sky blue?” which could lead you to electromagnetic waves which in
turn could lead you wave particle duality and to energy levels of atoms and before long you are
studying quantum mechanics or the structure of the universe.
AP Physics 1, OpenStax, with selected answers (869 pgs, mb)
College Physics For AP Courses, OpenStax, with selected answers (3,752 pgs, 32.4mb)
High School Physics, OpenStax (705 pgs, 14mb)

The five similar OpenStax texts above teach with real-world examples to help students grasp
fundamental physics concepts. Knowledge of algebra and some trigonometry is needed, but not
calculus. They include learning objectives, concept questions, links to labs and simulations, and
practice opportunities for traditional physics application problems.
