Activity-Based Physics

presents "thinking problems" for physics topics: vectors, kinematics, momentum, circular motion, universal gravitation, sound, energy, temperature, and circuits. Problems include designing a roller coaster, riding a bicycle efficiently, tailgating, tuning a radio, electrical safety, and how bats and dolphins "see" with sound (echolocation).
