1 Teaching Freshman Calculus-Based Physics Using the LOGIC Model Amin Jazaeri, Ph.D. COS Science Accelerator & School of Physics, Astronomy and Computational Sciences, George Mason University Spring 2013

2 What is the LO-GIC Model? LO-GIC stands for: Lectures Online Group-work In Class. Physics 160/260, University Physics I & II, are gateway courses for physics, engineering, math, and chemistry majors. Approximately 500 students take these courses each academic year. Both of these courses are implemented and class- tested in LOGIC.

3 Format of the Course Students watch pre-recorded videos online. Each chapter consists of 5-9 different videos anywhere between 5-25 minutes in length. During the class time, instructor will summarize the chapter, and students will get together and solve problems in groups of 3-4. After students attempt solving an assigned problem, the instructor will go over the problem and solve the problem. There will be a discussion on what concepts were used in solving the problem and what other methods could be used.

4 Assessment Online conceptual quiz at the end of each video lecture to test the conceptual knowledge of students gained from the videos In-class or online problem solving quiz to gauge their understanding on problem solving techniques Online homework through publisher’s homework management system In-class Exams In-class Final Pre and post standardized surveys (Force Concept Inventory)

5 LOGIC+ Will be implemented in HITEC (Highly Interactive, Technology Enhanced Collaborative) classrooms for Fall Larger class size (72 students). Will include mini-labs and demonstrations. Will include internet-based simulations and activities. Will utilize undergraduate learning assistants to assist students with problem solving. Use lecture capturing software to capture the in-class activities and place them on Blackboard.
