Conference Proceedings Detail Page

written by Karen Cummings, Timothy French, and Patrick Cooney
This article, presented at the 2002 Physics Education Research Conference, reports on a two part study examining the extent to which students use a textbook in calculus-based introductory physics courses for scientists and engineers. The first aspect of the study is an investigation of how the placement of worked examples influences student use of the textbook. The second aspect studied is how course assignments can be used to encourage students to read the textbook.
