Student Textbook Use in Introductory Physics 

written by Karen Cummings, Timothy French, and Patrick Cooney

This article reports on a two part study of extent to which students use a textbook in cal-culus-based introductory physics courses for scientists and engineers. The first aspect of the study is an investigation of how the placement of worked examples influences student use of the textbook. The second aspect studied is how course assignments can be used to encourage students to read the textbook.
