written by Edward F. Redish
published by the UMD PERG
This is a collection of introductory physics problems illustrating some general mathematical tools necessary for the course. The questions are designed for active learning classrooms and are built around research on student acquisition of knowledge. The problems vary in format and include context-based reasoning, multiple choice, estimation, and essay questions. The topics include scaling, dimensional analysis, and estimation.

This item is part of a larger collection of problems, in-class questions, and interactive resources developed by the University of Maryland Physics Education Research Group.
