This page contains a series of introductory physics questions posted in support of the "Teaching Physics with the Physics Suite", an activity-based learning project. Each problem was designed to help build qualitative understanding of physics and was built around results from Physics Education Research.   The problems vary in format and include estimation, context-based reasoning, multiple choice, short answer, qualitative questions, and essay questions.  

This material is part of a larger collection of problems, in-class questions, and interactive resources developed by the University of Maryland Physics Education Research Group.
