  Abstract: Traditionally, introductory physics courses require a good handling of mathematical manipulations. Many students come to college with a desire to learn physics, and they say that they like it. But when they take college physics they find the mathematics involved in it challenging. However their desire to do well is not enough sometimes to solve problems. Many students have a good feeling for the concepts and like laboratory experiments. In an introductory physics class at a small college, the student population is very diverse in background and expectations. Talking with my colleagues from other disciplines I learn about their type of assignments, and I offered my students choices. I will present different types of choices for in class and at home assignments.
