  Description This is a hands-on workshop designed for teachers interested in engaging their students in inquiry-based active learning. Participants will work with classroom-tested kinematics, dynamics and other mechanics units selected from the Activity-Based Physics High School CD (ABP HSCD). These student-centered materials are based on the outcomes of physics education research and are linked to the national standards. The curricular materials combined with the use of computers for data collection and analysis enable students to learn physics by doing. The curricula on the ABP HSCD include: RealTime Physics, Tools for Scientific Thinking, Workshop Physics and Interactive Lecture Demonstrations. The data acquisition equipment and software used in this workshop are compatible with both Mac and Windows computers and the hardware and software systems from both PASCO and Vernier Software and Technology.
