Activity-Based Tutorials are a set of small-group, guided inquiry learning materials designed for use in recitation and discussion sections.  Students develop conceptual knowledge of the physics through:
  • simple experiments using computer data acquisition tools,
  • basic observations enhanced by the use of digitized videotape of real phenomena,
  • analysis of computer simulations that aid in visualization of abstract ideas
  • conceptually rich problems.

The Activity-Based Tutorials are designed to accompany and enhance lecture instruction. They have been developed using a cycle of physics education research, including investigations into student learning on a given topic, development, and revision of the materials based on evaluation after use in the classroom.

In Activity-Based Tutorials Volume 2: Modern Physics, tutorials exist for topics in probability, quantum tunneling, and conductivity. 

Activity-Based Tutorials are a component of the Physics Suite.  The Physics Suite is a collection of materials created by a group of curriculum developers and educational reformers known as the Activity Based Physics Group.  The Physics Suite contains a broad array of curricular materials that are based on physics education research.
