The multi-institution Activity-Based Physics project aims to sustain and enhance efforts to render introductory physics courses more effective and exciting at both the secondary and college level. It uses the outcomes of physics education research along with flexible computer tools to promote activity-based models of physics instruction. This program includes the refinement of existing written materials, apparatus, instructional techniques, and computer software and hardware; the creation of new instructional materials and approaches; and dissemination.
This web site contains problem-solving resources from the Activity-Based Physics curriculum. It includes tutorials and how to use them, homework assignments, and other physics problems. The materials can be viewed by type of problem or by topic. Many of these problems come from the book "Teaching Physics with the Physics Suite."
