Workshop Physics Activity Guide is a student workbook designed to serve as the foundation for a twosemester calculusbased introductory physics course sequence that is activitycentered. It consists of 28 units that interweave text materials with activities that include prediction, qualitative observation, explanation, equation derivation, mathematical model building, quantitative experiments, and problem solving. Students use a powerful set of computer tools to record, display and analyze data as well as to develop mathematical models of physical phenomena. The design of many of the activities is based on the outcomes of physics education research. Workshop Physics Activity Guide is available in a format designed to give instructors flexibility in integrating all or some of the Workshop Physics units into their curriculum.The Core Volume (ISBN 0471155934) includes the introductory chapters and appendices that provide the foundation for all the other activitybased units. It includes the first seven activity units (Module1) comprising the first half of mechanics which covers experimental uncertainty, kinematics, and Newton's Laws.The remaining activity units are available in three independent Modules. Each module is a collection of looseleaf, threehole punched sheets.Module 2 (ISBN 0471155942) covers additional topics in mechanics including momentum, energy, rotation, oscillations, and chaos.Module 3 (ISBN 0471155950) covers thermodynamics and nuclear radiation.Module 4 (ISBN 0471155969) covers electricity and magnetism.The Workshop Physics Activity Guide approach is supported by an Instructor's Manual that (1) describes the underlying history and philosophy of the Workshop Physics Project; (2) provides advice and suggestions on how to integrate the Guide into a variety of educational settings; (3) provides information on computer tools (hardware and software) as well as apparatus; and (4) includes suggested homework assignments for each unit. The Guide includes activities especially designed to be used with digital video capture tools and analysis software such as VideoPoint. Developed by the authors and available from PASCO Scientific, VideoPoint enhances the students' ability to observe and understand twodimensional motion and other phenomena.
