Conference Proceedings Detail Page

written by Vincent P. Coletta and Jeffery A. Phillips
We report on the Thinking in Physics (TIP) project, which helps students develop basic skills necessary for learning physics. We describe methods used to improve students' thinking and problem-solving skills in TIP introductory mechanics classes, and the effect these methods have had on student learning.
