Description

We will present the work we have done over the past few years transforming a typical one-size-fits-all introductory physics course into a proficiency based course which allows for more personalized instruction. Each student is challenged at his/her level and is therefore more engaged in the course. The presentation will also cover the decision to reorder the topics so that momentum comes first and the addition of integrative problems to help the students to revisit previous units throughout the semester. This model should be transferable to other subject matter.
