This web site provides the resources for three inquiry-based curricular units for introductory Physical Science. These materials cover the topics of motion, force, and mechanical energy. These units provide reproducible student worksheets, laboratory manuals, and assessments for each topic. Each unit is designed so that students construct their own understanding of fundamental concepts through real life problem solving. The authors recommend the use of computer probe technology to enhance student learning, however it is not required.
