Looking for Mythology Curriculum Given in Grade School in the Seventies

Trying to identify the mythology books I was given over the summer in grade school in the mid-seventies. They were definitely curricular, I think even had characters like Sam (a boy) and Nip (a dog), perhaps there was a girl named Jane but I may be confusing her with the other series we all know. I'm not a teacher, just want to re-visit them for nostalgia's sake. [more inside]

Need help finding energy educational resources for K-12

I am working towards developing an energy education for local schools in Northern California. Does anybody have any helpful resources or places I should look? Unfortunately, I don't have anything to narrow the search as this could encompass anything from k-12. Resources can include curriculum, print outs, science kits (within a reasonable budget), competitions, etc... Pretty much anything that would get kids interested in renewable energy and energy efficiency. Any and all help would be appreciated!

Physics Curriculum

PhysicsFilter: Some years ago, I heard of an undergraduate curriculum that introduced physics at the quantum level using linear algebra and that did not reach classical mechanics until late in the second semester.
