Five Easy Lessons by Randall Knight
Five Easy Lessions: Strategies for Successful Physics Teaching

  • “An invaluable resource for any instructor interested in creating a physics class where students are actively engaged in learning and applying physics. The book is filled with specific suggestions on teaching individual topics in addition to an excellent summary and overview of teaching strategies based on physics education research.” — Michael Read, College of the Siskiyous, CA
  • “One of the most complete and helpful books on teaching introductory physics that I have ever come across. Not only does it provide thoughtful suggestions about how to improve your course topic by topic, it provides a marvelous primer on educational research into how students learn (or fail to learn) physics.” — Dale Pleticha, Gordon College, MA
  • “I have used the great ideas from this book over the last few years. It contains excellent summaries of research into students’ learning and offers lots of helpful and specific advice on how to bring the ideas that have emerged from this research into your classroom. It is a valuable resource for improving students’ learning.” — Larry Lonney, Shawnee State University, Portsmouth, OH
