written by Edward F. Redish
published by the UMD PERG
This is a collection of introductory physics problems on topics in kinematics. The questions are designed for active learning classrooms and are built around research on student acquisition of knowledge. The problems vary in format and include context-based reasoning, multiple choice, estimation, and essay questions. The topics include velocity and acceleration, graphs, and different representations of motion.

This item is part of a larger collection of problems, in-class questions, and interactive resources developed by the University of Maryland Physics Education Research Group.
