Abstract Title: Student Attitudes in Introductory Physics: How Students Experience Physics Courses
Abstract: The interaction between course environments and student responses can be complex. We look at two different sets of classes – algebra-based and calculus-based introductory physics. The focus is on students who went from the traditional classroom for one course to an alternative style for the next in the sequence, as well as feelings regarding interactive elements interwoven into traditional lecture classes. Individual interviews with students allowed us to examine the elements of the instructional environment that have impacts on students' attitudes.
