This resource contains collections of quantitative homework problems for introductory physics, calculus-based physics, Electricity and Magnetism, Optics, and Modern Physics.  Each homework problem is accompanied by a Socratic-dialogue "help" sequence designed to encourage critical thinking as users analyze various strategies for solving a problem.  Once the initial problem is correctly answered, a recap of the solution is presented in conceptual, strategic, and quantitative contexts.  The sequence culminates with follow-up conceptual questions to test understanding.  New collections are being developed for Thermodynamics and Quantum Physics.
