ConcepTests challenge students with qualitative questions that are not answered by memorization. Studies show that ConcepTests and peer instruction can dramatically improve functional understanding. Furthermore, instructors can gauge students understanding and tailor their instruction accordingly.
These all inclusive digital OneNote notebook files contain class notes, ConcepTests, pre-class assignments, recommended screencasts and simulations, homework problems, sample exams and resources about active learning methods. They can be taught from directly or tailored to fit any instructor's style.
