This resource is a collection of introductory physics homework assignments developed as an alternative to traditional textbook exercises.  These assignments were designed for use with the Activity-Based Physics instructional method (ABP).  Students use observational skills and mathematical modeling, combined with basic physics, to solve problems related to a single situation, such as riding a bicycle or tailgating while driving.  Each assignment integrates a variety of concepts and requires students to establish cause and effect relationships.  

Assignments are available in the following subject categories: mechanics, electricity and magnetism, and waves.
