Research-Based Instructional Strategies
(for introductory quantitative physics)







Research-Based Instructional Strategies

The list below includes instructional strategies for introductory quantitative (i.e., algebra- and calculus-based) physics courses that are based on research into teaching and learning. Most have also been shown to be significantly more effective in promoting student learning than traditional physics instruction. If you know of strategies that should be added to this list or corrections that should be made, please send an email to Charles Henderson.
