A significant component of any physics course is problem solving. I’ll use this page to post material concerning general problem solving.
This spring semester at DUML [Duke University Marine Lab], the second course in the sequence of introductory physics for bio/premed majors is being offered for one student who will be joining a virtual recitation group from the main campus of Duke University. During the live recitation sessions, she will be a talking head on a Tanberg [fancy web cam] while she participates from the marine lab’s video phone booth [a small office where the Tanberg on the DUML end resides]. I create this page to help serve as a tool for collaboration outside of the live session, for reflection on the recitation session, for a log which may serve as review and as data for evaluation of this unique learning environment/situation. Let the problem solving begin 🙂
