Abstract

The project seeks to analyze how thirteen selected schools cover the basic laboratory topics of introductory mechanics. A chart is presented which depicts the collection of topics within the realm of introductory mechanics. This chart is then used to discuss the coverage of each topic across all of the schools. The coverage of the topics by school is then discussed in further detail. Focus is paid to Worcester Polytechnic Institute for the strengths and weaknesses of its laboratory collection.
