About ResourceDisciplines & LevelContent TypeUsage Rights/Copyright


A series of workbooks, SPIRALPhysics, have been developed and used in place of a standard textbook in the introductory physics course sequence at Monroe Community College for several years. These workbooks, designed for use in an active learning environment, arrange topics such that students receive repeated exposure to concepts over an extended time interval,each time with an incremental increase in complexity.These workbooks emphasize multiple-representation problem solving techniques and goal-less problem statements.
