present material from the perspective of guided problem solving. It is largely the material presented by Larry Sorensen in a one-quarter, 400-level physics course as part of an evening Master of Science program at the University of Washington. The project originally intended only to typeset problems, posed both traditionally and then with guidance that Professor Sorensen dubbed his “garden path” version, and solutions. The stroll along the “garden path” was intended to make the homework sets accessible and an efficient use of the student’s time. The population of his

You are the new generation–you are in the best of company–welcome to the inquiry! Larry Sorensen vi
