This resource is a set of activity-based physics tutorials and worksheets developed for students with prior high school physics experience. It was designed to be implemented in student-centered cooperative learning environments. Some of the tutorials come in both a biological and technological slants. The tutorials feature thematic workshops across a broad range of topics relating to mechanics, including motion, vectors, work and power, conservation of energy, momentum, Newton's Laws, relativity, and rotational dynamics. 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 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.
