As someone who did take AP Phsyics C in High School along with a course for high school students at Columbia University which gave a basic introduction to general and special relativity, quantum mechanics, and string theory that same year, I can honestly say that...well, the guy in the video is right. Modern Physics is an amazingly fascinating subject and the fact that I had to go beyond the regular high school curriculum to learn this stuff does demonstrate the failings of the high school educational system. The same goes for math. Once again, I had to go beyond the average high school curriculum [into Linear Algebra, Differential Equations, Multivariable Calc, (Which are only taught in 2 public high schools in my city) and Math Team] to see some of the more fascinating things in the field of mathematics. Just goes to show how high school education can use a lot of reform right now.

I think the problem isn't really "engaging" unless you LIKE solving problems and numbers.

why are classes where you get to get up and move, or build/destroy something more highly praised and remembered? Because your body is in motion and you are using multiple senses to solve something.

Books don't teach as well as actually applying what is in your head.
