Collaborative Research: Succeeding in Introductory Physics: Building math fluency in a physics context

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

Together with the collaborating PI at Ohio State University, ASU PI David Meltzer will be responsible for leading the design of instructional and assessment materials, and will lead the administration and analysis of those materials for physics courses taught at Arizona State University. The instructional materials consist of various online mathematical problems and exercises that are designed to improve physics students' mathematical and problem-solving skill. The assessments are collections of items that are put on various quizzes and exams in order to determine levels and rates of change of student problem-solving performance. Meltzer will administer the instructional and assessment materials in physics courses taught by him at ASU, as well as in classes of other ASU faculty members who desire to collaborate with the project. Meltzer and his undergraduate student research assistant will lead the analysis of assessment data collected at ASU, and will collaborate with the PI at Ohio State University in overall evaluation and analysis of data collected by the project.
