Conference Proceedings Detail Page

written by Robert J. Beichner
The physics department at North Carolina State University folded together lecture and lab with multiple instructors to provide an economical alternative to traditional lecture-oriented instruction. The project involves the development, evaluation and dissemination of new curricular materials that will support significantly improved performance in problem solving, increased conceptual understanding, improved attitude and much higher success rates for females and minorities.
