  Description This workshop will introduce participants to our modeling-based approach to problem solving, a pedagogy that enables students to attain significant expert-like improvement of their problem solving skills as well fostering dramatically more expert-like attitudes towards science, particularly in Problem-Solving Sophistication. Workkshop participants will be introduced to MAPS and its central "System, Interactions, Model" procedure, then will sample and discuss the various instructional materials for in-class. These include: the Model Hierarchy, multi-concept problems, an expert inventory, classification tasks, Mastering Physics problems, and the open source WIKItextBOOK under development (bring your laptop for this). This new pedagogical approach is designed to be integrated into existing courses without dramatic changes to the syllabi, and the workshop goal is to enable participants to introduce it into their courses.
