FlipItPhysics supports each stage of the learning experience: Students engage with material before class with animated PreLectures; during class with tailored lectures and peer instruction; and after class with examples, tutorials and homework problems carefully designed to build understanding. With data generated by student activity during PreLectures, instructors can build a bridge to the classroom experience and easily incorporate proven just‐in‐time teaching methods. With offerings for the university (calculus‐based) and college (algebra‐based) introductory physics courses, FlipItPhysics is an effective, proven way to improve student comprehension and retention of course material, and to create a more meaningful and memorable learning experience for students and instructors alike.
