The results suggest that the M&I curriculum is more effective than the traditional curriculum at teaching E&M concepts to students, possibly because the learning progression in M&I reorganizes and augments the traditional sequence of topics, for example, by increasing early emphasis on the vector field concept and by emphasizing the effects of fields on matter at the microscopic level.}, number={2}, journal={PHYSICAL REVIEW SPECIAL TOPICS-PHYSICS EDUCATION RESEARCH}, author={Kohlmyer, Matthew A. and Caballero, Marcos D. and Catrambone, Richard and Chabay, Ruth W. and Ding, Lin and Haugan, Mark P. and Marr, M.

Computation can support three-dimensional visualizations of abstract quantities, offer opportunities to construct symbolic rather than numeric solutions to problems, and provide experience with the use of vectors as coordinate-free entities. Computation can also allow students to explore models in a way not possible using the analytical tools available to first-year students. We describe how we have incorporated computer programming into an introductory calculus-based course taken by science and engineering students.}, number={4-5}, journal={AMERICAN JOURNAL OF PHYSICS}, author={Chabay, Ruth and Sherwood, Bruce}, year={2008}, pages={307–313} }

As a result, many students find E&M significantly more difficult than classical mechanics. We describe a different intellectual structure for the E&M course that stresses conceptual coherence, connects the abstract field concept to concrete microscopic models of matter, and follows a clear story line, culminating in the classical model of the interaction of electromagnetic radiation and matter. This sequence has proven to be effective in teaching the basic concepts of E&M.}, number={4}, journal={AMERICAN JOURNAL OF PHYSICS}, author={Chabay, R and Sherwood, B}, year={2006}, month={Apr}, pages={329–336} }

We propose alternative goals and describe an introductory “modern mechanics” course that addresses these alternative goals. Included in the description are several genres of homework problems that are nearly absent from traditional mechanics courses at both the introductory and intermediate levels.
