Book finished!

A version of the book is ready to go for this coming semester and can be seen at UMass Phys 131 Textbook. Feedback on the book can be given at We are really excited to use this book for the first time this coming semester! We think that continuous nature of the students’ readings will make it easier for students to navigate and know what they need to read.

Congrats to P131 Award Winners

Two people associated with P131 during the Spring 2016 semester were publicly recognized for their efforts at the 2016 Student Awards:

Zachary Meadows, a graduate TA for P131, was awarded the Quinton Teaching Assistant Award for his excellent work helping students this past semester.

Anwesha Saha, a student in P296 Independent Study of Teaching Methods in P131, was awarded the Morton and Helen Sternheim Award for her interest in physics education.

Congratulations to these two winners!
