written by the UniServe Science and Manjula Devi Sharma
This resource is a set of activity-based physics tutorials and worksheets developed for introductory classes made up of students with little background in physics.  It was designed to be implemented in student-centered cooperative learning environments.  The tutorials feature thematic workshops across a broad range of topics relating to mechanics, including motion, vectors, work and power, conservation of energy, momentum, Newton's Laws, and rotational dynamics.  Each worksheet is supplemented with a complete solution and full description of all suggested activities. Materials are available in Word and PDF formats.    

Created by the University of Sydney Physics Education Research group (SUPER) this item is part of a larger collection of activity-based physics tutorials.
