Elective Recitation Sections in Physics Freshman Service Courses
A presentation from the 2015 Summer Meeting: College Park, Maryland
Students from 23 departments on the Cal Poly Pomona campus are required to take freshman physics service courses. Many of them struggle to succeed. Introductory physics courses at Cal Poly Pomona do not normally include any recitation sections focused on concepts and problem solving skills. We present data that we used to assess the effectiveness of elective recitation sections as we experimented with different formats.
