This page contains step-by-step tutorials and guided inquiry activities that are designed to help students discover physical properties and concepts by developing understanding from mathematics.  Problem-solving techniques and equation-solving are also discussed.  Most of this material is written for upper level classical mechanics courses, but some are meant for other courses. Connections are made with the Intermediate Mechanics Tutorials by Ambrose and Wittmann.

Supplementary homework sets are available for some labs.  All materials are available in Word and PDF formats.
