Students come to our physics classrooms with a wide range of math abilities and this inevitably influences the way in which we teach them physics. With this in mind, you may find yourself teaching a wide range of courses, from Conceptual to AP Physics, and the varying math requirements associated with each of those courses. Even if you teach one course, such as On-Level Physics, you are likely faced with preparing lessons for an audience of mixed-math ability. How can we effectively encourage and engage our students to excel in problem-solving in physics?

In this module the teacher will:

In this module the teacher will:

- Identify the level at which students are performing in math.
- Learn and apply teaching methods that allow students to visualize the math behind the physics.
- Learn and apply strategies to help students improve their math skills.
- Create a math-based physics lesson that can be easily modified for a variety of course levels.
- Learn and apply strategies on how to successfully teach a physics lesson to a classroom of students with mixed-math abilities.
