Conference Proceedings Detail Page

written by Suzanne Brahmia
The Extended Analytical Physics course at Rutgers University was crafted to improve learning in the first-year physics course for students mathematically under-prepared for engineering physics.  It is a core course in the engineering curriculum and has contributed to the increase in success of underrepresented groups in physics and in subsequently in STEM majors.  This article describes the evolution of this course, its current structure, the successes measured and the future plans.
