Description

MasteringPhysics is the most advanced, educationally effective, and widely used physics homework and tutorial system in the world. Eight years in development, it provides instructors with a library of extensively pre-tested end-of-chapter problems and rich, multipart, multistep tutorials that incorporate a wide variety of answer types, wrong-answer feedback, individualized help (comprising hints or simpler sub-problems upon request), all driven by the largest metadatabase of student problem-solving in the world. NSF-sponsored published research (and subsequent studies) show that MasteringPhysics has dramatic educational results. MasteringPhysics allows instructors to build wide-ranging homework assignments of just the right difficulty and length and provides them with efficient tools to analyze both class trends, and the work of any student in unprecedented detail.

 

MasteringPhysics routinely provides instant and individualized feedback and guidance to more than 100,000 students every day. A wide range of tools and support make MasteringPhysics fast and easy for instructors and students to learn to use. Extensive class tests show that by the end of their course, an unprecedented eight of nine students recommend MasteringPhysics as their preferred way to study physics and do homework.

 

 

MasteringPhysics enables instructors to:

  • Quickly build homework assignments that combine regular end-of-chapter problems and tutoring (through additional multi-step tutorial problems that offer wrong-answer feedback and simpler problems upon request).
  • Expand homework to include the widest range of automatically graded activities available–from numerical problems with randomized values, through algebraic answers, to free-hand drawing.
  • Choose from a wide range of nationally pre-tested problems that provide accurate estimates of time to complete and difficulty.
  • After an assignment is completed, quickly identify not only the problems that were the trickiest for students but the individual problem stpes where students had trouble.
  • Compare class results against the system's national average for each problem assigned, to identify issues to be addressed with just-in-time teaching.
  • Check the work of an individual student in detail, including time spent on each problem, what wrong answers they submitted at each step, how much help they asked for, and how many practice problems they worked.
