A Tradition of Excellence

Physics Curriculum & Instruction is organized to act as both a developer and academic publisher of physics educational materials. Our efforts are focused in the areas of textbook and software development at the high school and college level. Educational materials are authored by physics professors from a variety of colleges and universities who excel in physics education.

Our exceptionally skilled authors have produced what many consider to be the finest materials available for physics education—materials designed for practical classroom use created by instructors with years of teaching experience. Products are revised on an ongoing basis to make sure they remain current and viable in an ever-changing learning environment.

Having been a trusted name in physics education for over 25 years, our highly acclaimed materials can be found in widespread use throughout the United States, Canada, Australia, and other countries worldwide. Come and explore the many ways we can help you enrich your curriculum!

Be sure to look into our workshops and product demonstrations held regularly at AAPT National and Section Meetings. AAPT Section Officers are encouraged to contact us regarding product donations for upcoming Section Meetings.
