This website contains a series of peer instruction problems on properties of matter, designed to be solved in a classroom setting. The problems are presented with a qualitative question (usually multiple choice) that is carefully constructed to engage student difficulties with fundamental concepts. Students consider the problem individually and contribute their answers using personal response systems (clickers). Students then confer with their cooperative groups and vote again on the correct response. Topics covered include pressure, fluid flux, fluid speed, and Bernoulli's equations. This problem set is part of the Physics Suite collection, containing sample problems, peer instruction problems, and alternative homework sets.
