On-Line Homework System:
Why MasteringPhysics?

  1. First and foremost; research has shown that students using an on-line package like MasteringPhysics™ do better on tests.
  2. MasteringPhysics™ provides hints and other instructional aids while you are working on your homework. These can be used when you are stuck on a problem.
  3. You will get immediate feedback on your homework using MasteringPhysics™. With immediate feedback you will know what you are doing right and what you are doing wrong immediately. This gives you the opportunity to ask questions while a particular topic is being discussed in class. The alternative is to wait for a week to find out what you did wrong when you get the graded homework back.
  4. I get immediate feedback on what you are having trouble with. I have access to your homework as you complete it. This will allow us to discuss areas of difficulty in class while you are working on the problems.
