The ActivPhysicsTM 1 CD-ROM and accompanying workbook use visualization, simulation, and multiple representation to help students become active participants in any introductory physics course. Topics include mechanics, thermodynamics, and waves. Instructors can customize lecture notes and classroom demonstrations using ActivPhysicsTM 1 through an included electronic notebook, ActivPad. Users with access to the World Wide Web can link directly to the Internet and connect to external Web resources. The CD-ROM is cross-platform, for Windows and Macintosh.

- Based on Alan Van Heuvelen's proven active learning approach, the CD-ROM helps students visualize underlying physical processes, develop intuition, confront misconceptions, reason qualitatively about physical processes, and learn to use concepts to solve problems.
- An on-line Guidebook assists students as they work through the program.
- ActivPhysicsTM 1 can be used for self study, for lab activities, and for lecture demonstrations. The CD-ROM can be used alone or with the recommended ActivPhysicsTM 1 workbook.
- Instructors can customize ActivPhysicsTM 1 through a built-in word processing and hyperlinking tool, ActivPad.
