Free High School Science Texts

Free High School Science Texts (FHSST) is a project conceived in the true spirit of Open Source. It aims to provide free science and mathematics textbooks for Grades 10 to 12 learners by encouraging educators and scientists from all over the world to contribute and edit content that will, ultimately, become textbooks. These books will be available for free, over the Internet, for use by teachers and students who need them.

The project was initiated by Mark Horner, a University of Cape Town (South Africa) post-graduate physics student, but has since grown to a much larger group of contributors including students, lecturers and people in industry. It now brings together scientists from around the world who are willing to contribute, for free, to the writing of the books.

FHSST believes that Science education is about more than learning subjects like Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. It is about learning to think and to solve problems. These are valuable skills that can be applied through all spheres of life. Teaching these skills to young people will equip them to make a positive contribution to their future and the future of the rest of the world.

In developing these science texts, FHSST intends to:

  • Provide a complete high school science text that can be used for free anywhere in the world as needed
  • Provide a free resource, that can be used alone or in conjunction with other education initiatives in South Africa, to any/all learners and teachers
  • Provide a detailed, accurate and interesting text that adheres to the South African school curriculum and the outcomes-based education system
  • Provide a text that is easy to read and understand even for second-language English speakers
  • Make a difference in South Africa through helping to educate our next generation
  • Make a difference throughout the world, as this content is tailored for use in other countries.
The driving force of this project is based on the ideas and principles of the free software community where each person does their part to build something great together. Though these textbooks were started in South Africa, the online community that is working on them is global, as will be the community that makes use of them.
