This paper describes the contents of Minds on Physics, an integrated curriculum material for high school physics developed by the Physics Education Research Group (PERG) with the University of Massachusetts and high school teachers. This curriculum is based on an action-oriented constructivist approach. There are six types of materials in the curriculum: (1) student activities; (2) student reader; (3) answers and instructional aids for teachers; (4) assessment items; (5) supplements; and (6) answer sheets. For sample activities or ordering materials from Minds on Physics visit: http://umperg.physics.umass.edu/resources/mop. Six volumes of activities have been published by Kendall/Hunt.
