I am considering this text for my high school Honors/AP course. Do you have an opinion of the text and its online Wiley PLUS with ORION Advantage?

I can’t comment on this book. Have you checked amazon for ratings?

With respect to physics, there are a couple of books at Openstax.org at this same level. You could use them for supplemental material.

There are two versions for the college physics book one for college physics and one for AP level and there’s a calculus based university three volume level.

Thanks. I have seen and used Openstax and I think they are great. My students really prefer a physical text and resist an online text. I know pdf and physical versions are available.

The physical book copies are comparable in price at about $50 a copy.

If you printed select chapters from openstax for your students and got them bound you might save some bucks for the school.

It’s funny how the same college level book in a college bookstore is on the order of $250 to $300.
