written by David E. Pritchard, John Belcher, and Andrew Pawl
This is a collection of introductory mechanics problems that feature authentic data in real-world scenarios. The problems were crafted to be challenging enough that students must think critically about problem-solving strategies and, often, search independently for relevant data. Problems are given a difficulty rating based on the scheme developed by the University of Minnesota for use with Context-Rich Problems.  Topics include 1-D kinematics, projectiles, energy, force, momentum, work, and simple harmonic motion.

SEE RELATED MATERIALS on this page to link to the web site for the PER-based Context Rich Problems archive and further information about creating and using context-rich problems in the introductory physics classroom.
