Physics should be experienced and make sense to you. Each chapter of Active Physics begins with a challenge--develop a sport that can be played on the Moon; build a home for people with a housing crisis; persuade your parents to lend you the family car; and so on. These are tough challenges, but you will learn the physics that will allow you to be successful at every one. Part of your education is to learn to trust yourself and to question others. When someone tells you something, can they answer your questions: "How do you know? Why should I believe you? and Why should I care?" After Active Physics, when you describe why seat belts are important, or why sports can be played on the moon, or why communication with extraterrestrials is difficult, and someone asks, "How do you know?" your answer will be, "I know because I did an experiment."
