- link their conceptual knowledge to quantitative problem solving.

- Develop curriculum to improve problem solving skills.

we’d rather not have the students read a problem then either:

have the students naturally using physical principles and concepts when solving quantitative problems

try to remmeber how they were told to solve a similar problem

or just search for the formulas that wil give the unknown they are looking for

we would like them to think about the problem -

then use basic principles and

concepts they have developed to pick the correct formula to use and solve the problem

like to have the students naturally using physical principles and concept when solving problems
