  • MIT OpenCourseWare contains a treasure trove for high school students, in addition to college-level courses. The high school section focuses on subjects and exam preparation for math, biology, chemistry, physics, engineering, programming, humanities and social studies. MIT has also spawned several supporting web sites that can work alongside the OCW.

  • This course outlines Massachusetts Institute of Technology's OpenCourseWare (MIT's OCW) for high school students, and will:

    • introduce MIT's OCW web site, 
    • highlight the high school section of the OCW,
    • reorganize OCW's links in a one-page view.
    • help clarify MIT's array of features and supporting web sites.

    Highlights for High School is an open educational resource developed by MIT OpenCourseWare that provides free classroom materials for high school educators, students, and parents.

    The materials are drawn from several sources including:

    • MIT undergraduate courses
    • MIT faculty who have created course materials specifically for the high school audience
    • MIT outreach programs aimed at high school students
  • Dish 5 : Fundamentals of Biology - a MIT OCW course

  • For example, this is a specific course on biology, "Fundamentals of Biology." From this page, the student previews the course description, prerequisites, goals, format, and teaching team. 

    This page then links to course materials, videos, progress quizzes, exam and solution (PDFs), assignments and solutions. The videos are on Youtube (and therefore fast), and range from a few minutes to about 50 minutes.
