This website contains a compilation of materials based on the Modeling Instruction pedagogical approach to teaching physics. It includes content support for teachers, model assessments, lab guides, student study guides, problems and solutions, and materials from professional physics education workshops. Materials are organized by fundamental models and encompass topics typically covered in an introductory physics curriculum. All resources are freely downloadable and may be reproduced for classroom use. The resources were developed for high school use but most are appropriate for use in Introductory Physics classes.
