This article contains an introduction to the teaching method known as Peer Instruction, created by Eric Mazur to help make lectures more interactive and get students intellectually engaged. Peer Instruction problems are presented with a qualitative question (usually multiple choice) that is carefully constructed to engage student difficulties with fundamental concepts. Students consider the problem individually and contribute their answers using personal response systems or flash cards. Students then confer with their cooperative groups and vote again on the correct response. This web page also provides a link to an annotated collection of Peer Instruction problems in PDF format that can easily be printed to a transparency.
