Art of Problem Solving (AoPS, www.AoPS.com) develops educational resources for motivated students in grades 2 - 12, including textbooks, an online school, learning centers, and a variety of online applications. We take a fundamentally different approach to education, one with an emphasis on problem solving, and our students are flourishing.
AoPS has recently expanded into physics with the successful implementation of PhysicsWOOT, an advanced course in problem-solving for high school physics competitions. Now, we seek a physics educator to join our team and help us build new material for many of the country’s top students.
You might be a good fit for this position if you want to inspire kids to dive deeper into physics by engaging them in solving rich and challenging problems. You’ve read about how our AoPS Online and AoPS Academy classes work. Your teaching experience has prepared you to transition into these environments and to work with both middle and high school students. You’re excited about teaching and developing lessons on a variety of topics, ranging from classical mechanics to modern physics. You’ve also checked out our PhysicsWOOT page and are eager to help this new program continue to grow.
In this position, you will collaborate with the rest of our curriculum team to:
Design lessons for new online and in-person courses aimed at advanced middle and high schoolers.
Create labs that teach fundamentals of scientific practices, including model-building, communication, collaboration, data analysis, and experimental design.
Interact with students through teaching online courses, fostering conversations on our message boards, and working with students in person at our learning centers.
To apply, send to email@example.com your cover letter, resume, and a link to or a document containing something you have produced to teach a pre-college student anything about physics. This is a full-time position at our headquarters in San Diego, CA.
