Hi Lars,

I would recommend to look at Ed Kashy's newer material under


Also, if you point your course to

/res/msu/mmp/lbs271.sequence (first semester)
/res/msu/mmp/lbs272.sequence (second semester)

you will see less numerical, and more conceptual stuff than in 
phy231c.sequence and phy232c.sequence

Of course the Hewett book does not have the classical kind of "end of 
the chapter" problems, which are easily graded by a computer. You might 
want to start editing some essay-type problems. If you show 
http://www.lon-capa.org/publisher.html to the Little, Brown and Company 
book rep, they might be interested in having a problem library 
developed to go with their book.

- Gerd.
