Phillies, George D.
The IUPP report indicated that introductory university mechanics students rate lecture and homework as the two most valuable aspects of teaching physics. Interestingly, a literature search resulted in very little research devoted to the importance of homework in teaching physics. This paper reports, in tabulated form, an analysis of the homework solutions from eight different universities. The results include the use of calculus, symbolic math, the number of problems, and the number of figures in each.
