How the Site is Organized
The website is organized into two main sections: Subjects and Exam Preparation. The Subjects section is arranged by topics that you are likely to encounter at your high school, such as mathematics, physics, and biology. Within each of these subjects you will find a variety of content, such as labs, courses, and video resources that will vary from subject to subject. We encourage you to explore the subjects that interest you.
The Exam Preparation section is aimed at students who are preparing to take of the Advanced Placement exams in Biology, Calculus, Chemistry, or Physics. These materials are meant to supplement the learning that takes place in your class. We have mapped relevant OCW course materials to the topics in these exams, so it's easily searchable by one of these topics.
