Additional Learning Tools and Resources

Watching a presentation is a passive activity. Getting information is important ... but its not the destination or end point. Now that you've watched the video, its time to do something with the information you've heard. It's time to act on it. The resources below provide an opportunity to do this. We encourage learners to solidify their learning through the use of one or more of the following resources.

Calculator Pad, Work and Energy Problem Set, Problems #20 - #28

Our Calculator Pad section consists of a collection of problems on varied topics, Each problem comes with an answer and an audio file that extensively addresses the solution. What more do you need? If your course emphasizes problem-solving, then we would emphasize that you make the Calculator Pad your friend.
