This web site provides research-based materials for a sophomore-level course in classical mechanics and mathematical methods. This material focuses on the mathematical foundation of mechanics. Topics include vectors, curvilinear coordinates, ordinary and partial differential equations, line, surface, and volume, integrals, gravitation, oscillations, Taylor expansion, complex numbers, Fourier series, and delta functions. The course archives include documented student difficulties, learning goals, ConcepTests (clicker questions), class activities, homework, tutorials, and a conceptual assessment tool. All may be downloaded, although the assessment tools require permission from the authors for access.
