Welcome to the Concept Question Page
of the MAA Partnerships
Physics and Mathematics Workshop!

These concept questions were developed by cross-disciplinary teams of participants at the June 1999 workshop on Physics and Mathematics. One common way to use concept questions is to present the question to the class and ask for a vote (either with cards or ideally you would have electronic voting equipment). After seeing the results, ask students to discuss the question in groups, then vote again.

We hope you will enjoy these concept questions and will find them helpful for your teaching. Please use them freely, but we ask that you contact us afterwards to let us know if they were useful.
(You can contact project directors Drs. Straley or Winkel via the Partnerships home page http://science.kennesaw.edu/~mburke/partnerships/index.html.)
