Free Access to MIT Course Plans

Curriculum and Lesson PlansA Facebook friend recently posted a link to the MIT OpenCourseware Site and I decided to take a look. Amazingly, MIT has an incredible number (over 2000!) of its course syllabi and materials available for perusal and use. There is also a special high school site which highlights introductory MIT courses and enrichment courses designed especially for high school students by MIT students.


What does this mean for homeschoolers? It means that there is a wonderful resource for those planning on homeschooling for high school. These are pre-planned classes one can adapt to one’s needs. Thank you, MIT!
