Eric Mazur: New general physics textbook

Eric talked with us about the format, design, implementation, and philosophy issues he and his collaborators dealt with when writing the new book. He talked about how conservation theorems are front and center in the book and he shared new approaches to teaching collisions and energy.

Here’s the recording.

There is no meeting this week. Join us next week (3/26) when we host Tom Jordan to talk about QuarkNet.
