Summary

Physics can be a challenging subject that is learned most effectively by experience. The critically acclaimed Physics Active Learning Guide has been developed specifically to help students. A series of discovery-based activities focus on building student confidence with physics concepts and problem solving by helping connect new ideas with what students already know and to the world around them. Students will learn how to evaluate, draw, diagram, and graph physics concepts on their own and in collaborative groups. The analytical skills students develop by using this Guide will help them succeed in their physics class and throughout their career.
