This resource is a set of calculus-based physics tutorials and worksheets on waves and optics, developed for students who have successfully completed a course in high school physics.  It was designed to be implemented in student-centered cooperative learning environments.  The tutorials feature thematic workshops across a broad range of topics relating to wave phenomena, types of waves, sound, simple harmonic motion, electromagnetic spectrum, reflection/refraction, lenses, and mirrors.    Workshop Tutorials were deliberately designed to not be part of the formal assessment procedure, allowing students to openly discuss problems in physics and explore solutions in a stress-free environment.  Solutions are provided to students as they leave the class, giving them immediate feedback on their ideas.  All materials, including worksheets/solutions and activities, are available in Word and PDF formats.    

Created by the University of Sydney Physics Education Research group (SUPER) this item is part of a larger collection of activity-based physics tutorials.
