The CUPLE Project: A Hyper- and Multi-Media Approach to Restructuring Physics Education.
Redish, E. F.; Wilson, Jack M.; McDaniel, Chad
The Comprehensive Unified Physics Learning Environment (CUPLE) is a project that brings together innovative uses of the computer for physics teaching into a single, multi-purpose learning environment. The status of college-level introductory physics teaching is reviewed. In these courses, physics instructors have been forced to be satisfied with only the best students achieving significant learning. Even those students often have to wait until later in their training to begin to learn many of the tools that are fundamental to the activities of the professional physicist. This paper discusses how educational computer technology might be used to change this situation. The CUPLE environment, as an example of a way to deliver the requisite computer tools, is also discussed. (Contains 25 references.) (ASK)
