Website Detail Page
written by Aaron Titus
This page contains a set of problems that supplement the introductory textbook Matter and Interactions by Ruth Chabay and Bruce Sherwood. The problems were developed specifically to accompany Volume 1, Chapter 1 on motion and forces. Topics include descriptions of motion, vector algebra, momentum changes, and more. Each problem can be viewed separately, with solutions, or downloaded as a pdf file.
The site includes videos showing solutions to many of the problems. These can be followed with RSS or as podcasts from iTunes. Instructors are encouraged to submit their own problems and solutions to the web site. Problems must be submitted in LaTeX format; the web site provides ample support for this process.
NOTE: Although this material is organized to support Matter and Interactions, most of the problems can be used with other introductory physics texts. Additional information about the pedagogy behind Matter and Interactions, which emphasizes student modeling and a modern perspective on physics, can be found at the Matter and Interactions Home Page
For a cost-free article by the authors on implementation of Matter and Interactions in the introductory physics classroom, SEE RELATED ITEMS on this page.
