It consists of 28 units that interweave textual materials with activities such as prediction, qualitative observation, explanation, equation derivation, mathematical modeling, quantitative experiments and problem-solving. Students use a range of powerful computer tools to record, display, and analyze data, and to develop mathematical models of physical phenomena. The design of many activities is based on the results of physics education research.

## PHYSICS WITHOUT LECTURES

The Workshop Physics Activity Guide consists of a series of student workbooks that serve as the basis for a two-semester, calculus-based physics course.
