Abstract

At Murdoch University there are two first year physics mechanics units, one is algebra based, co-ordinated by David Parlevliet and the other is calculus based, co-ordinated by Chris Creagh. Both units have between 70 and 120 students in them, most of whom are not physics students. The continual challenge is to engage the non-physics students at an appropriate level while maintaining a high quality unit that extends the physics major students. One way of doing this is to make the units as student focused as possible. This allows students to achieve at a level they are comfortable with.
