About the Author

Robert Jansen has taught Advanced Placement Physics since 1998. He holds a bachelor's degree in psychobiology from the University of California, Los Angeles, and a master's degree in education from Pepperdine University. His teaching methods derive from his belief that physics does not need to be mysterious or difficult. The result has been a large and competitive AP physics program in Aliso Viejo, California that brings in more than 220 students each year.

Greg Young has been teaching high school physics and chemistry for more than twenty years. He holds a bachelor's degree in biochemistry from the University of California, San Diego, and a master's degree in science education from USC. He believes that science made interesting is science worth learning, and creates engaging, interactive lessons that help students form a relevant context for difficult scientific concepts.
