Description

The Workshop Physics Activity Guide is a set of student workbooks designed to serve as the foundation for a two-semester calculus-based introductory physics course. It consists of 28 units that interweave text materials with activities that include prediction, qualitative observation, explanation, equation derivation, mathematical modeling, quantitative experiments, and problem solving. Students use a powerful set of computer tools to record, display, and analyze data, as well as to develop mathematical models of physical phenomena. The design of many of the activities is based on the outcomes of physics education research.
Unit 1. Introduction and Computing.

Unit 2. Measurement Uncertainty.

Unit 3. One-Dimensional Motion I—A Graphical Description.

Unit 4. One-Dimensional Motion II—A Mathematical Description of Constant Acceleration.

Unit 5. One-Dimensional Forces, Mass, and Motion.

Unit 6. Gravity and Projectile Motion.

Unit 7. Applications of Newton’s Laws.
