Making Experts of Physics (Instead of Just Equation Jockeys)

I’m finishing my second year of modeling instruction in 2016-2017.

I’m frustrated by the order of the topics, and wondering if there is a better way.

Then I read this paper:

A couple things I really like about it:

  1. returning to an overview of concepts in physics (i.e. models that may apply to any problem)
  2. putting work back on the students
  3. sharing feedback with students on how the course is going
