Abstract Title: Timing effects of starting introductory Physics sequence on science GPA
Abstract: A set of 14 different science courses, across the physical sciences were selected for study.  Courses were selected to cover a range of science disciplines and to maximize the number of students who and completed all courses some time in the last 5 years.  Normalized grades were computed for each course offering.  A normalized science GPA was computed for all students who completed all of the 14 different science courses.  This data is studied in relation to the number of college credits students had upon starting the introductory physics sequence.
