Abstract

With the exception of management and architecture students, virtually all majors at Georgia Tech are required to take three five-hour courses in basic physics. the present effort focuses on developing and assessing primarily computer-based instructional systems for enhancing student performance in the second-quarter physics course in electricity and magnetism. This course is perceived as the most difficult of the three-quarter sequence, with some 30% of students making 'D', 'F', or withdrawing. An approach to the precision teaching of this course is described, with particular attention given to the creation and improvement of the precision teaching materials.
