Curriculum Resources

Below are links to sample courseware developed for use by teachers in Modeling Workshops prior to 2010. Modeling Instruction is a curriculum design, not a curriculum. Thus it is very flexible: adaptable to diverse populations, course levels, grades and content areas.

To see sample mechanics curriculum resources and beyond, we suggest that educators visit Mark Schober's website. It is a coherent course: includes modeling syllabus, worksheets, projects, readings, etc. for an entire year of high school physics (the 9 mechanics units, electric charge, sound & music, 3 models of light, and Six Flags Amusement Park physics). Accompanying each unit for the entire year are: key ideas, online simulations, practice problems, and relevant web links. Mark is a Modeling Workshop leader, and he helped develop the "models of light" workshop materials.
