Each year, more than 150 000 college students across the US enroll in calculus‐based introductory physics courses. Most of these courses are taught in the traditional mode, with students sitting passively through two or more lectures per week and reporting once or twice a week to recitation classes and laboratory sessions. Students often plow through as many as 500 pages of equation‐laden text each semester and complete one or two written assignments per week. And faculty members expend considerable effort conducting the whole enterprise.
