Jack discovered during his second year of teaching, his students were frustrated. Not only did the current approach for physics education require students to all be at a certain level to understand even discussing the concepts, students that were performing well if you glanced at their exam scores were also missing the why. Mr. Replinger saw this and knew his student's didn't want to do bad, he knew they wanted to understand and do well. There just wasn't a way to do that effectively and he came up with Positive Physics.
Positive Physics started with the mindset that any student could "learn and love physics." After a decade of iterations the curriculum had made improvements in Replinger's classroom. He then wanted to share it with the world. After speaking with some people, trying to see what it would take to get this into the hands of students and teachers, he was told he needed lots and lots of money. Along with a large team with expertise to make this vision a reality.
