The Tasks Inspired by Physics Education Research (TIPERS) workbooks pose questions in styles quite different from the end-of-chapter problems that those of us of a certain age were assigned back in the days before Netscape. My own spin on TIPERS is not just to do them on paper, but to have students set up the situations in the laboratory to verify—or contradict —their paper solutions. The circuits unit is particularly conducive to creating quick-and-dirty lab setups that demonstrate the result of conceptually framed problems.
