This resource is a collection of introductory physics homework assignments developed as an alternative to traditional textbook exercises. These assignments were designed for use with the Activity-Based Physics instructional method (ABP). Students use observational skills and mathematical modeling, combined with basic physics, to solve problems related to a single situation, such as riding a bicycle or tailgating while driving. Each assignment integrates a variety of concepts and requires students to establish cause and effect relationships. Assignments are available in the following subject categories: mechanics, electricity and magnetism, and waves. (less)

This small collection from Learner.org provides a unique digital lab for teachers to explore new ideas in learning. The activities are designed around four strands: patterns in mathematics, seasonal changes and moon phases, geometry, and the nature of light. Each section features interactive exercises to challenge teachers' thinking about logic, pattern recognition, shape and structure, symbolic relationships, and mathematical reasoning. The authors then delve into the learning theory behind the activities and how it can be extended to learners of different ages and abilities. Each module provides links to hands-on activities for the classroom. (less)

This web site can be used to access self-tests and build conceptual inventories on topics in electricity and magnetism. The topics covered range from charges and electrostatics to circuits, magnetic fields, and electro-magnetic waves. In self-test mode, a learner can access concept quizzes consisting of 5 multiple choice questions covering a selected topic. Questions are pulled from an extensive question database. These quizzes are graded, solutions provided, and a cumulative score kept for each session. In Concept Inventory mode, an instructor or learner can build concept quizzes from the question database. In building these quizzes, the number of questions, topics covered, and specific questions can all be selected. The resultant quizzes can be printed, solutions created, or downloaded for import into the Blackboard Course Management System. (less)
