written by Edward F. Redish
published by the UMD PERG
This is a collection of introductory physics problems on topics in forces and dynamics. The questions are designed for active learning classrooms and are built around research on student acquisition of knowledge. The problems vary in format and include context-based reasoning, multiple choice, estimation, and essay questions. The topics include general questions about Newton's laws, force diagrams, and connections between forces and motion.

This item is part of a larger collection of problems, in-class questions, and interactive resources developed by the University of Maryland Physics Education Research Group.
