These chapters are provided as a supplement to the instruction or assigned videos and class work for the parallel pedagogy curriculum, as described in a May, 2017 The Physics Teacher publication. They are very short and simple with the intention that students will actually read them. Simple examples illustrate the concepts introduced, but the reader has access to many more examples and solutions via problem sets, exams and videos accessible from the class website of Spring 2017. I will continue to develop this text and "publish" it on OpenStax at the end of July, 2017. Please contact me if you find mistakes, have ideas for improvements, or want to contribute.

1 Linear Mechanics

2 Energy and Direction

3 Looking at Motion

4 Rotation

I'm revising the curriculum: cleaning up the text, providing some examples, and renumbering the chapters. I'm doing it chronologically and will continue moving on from here.
