Sounds great, I'll use some this
Fall in a 400 student class

> Hi,
> 	A group of us (FSU, OU, GWU) have created a set of problems
> involving DC Circuits as part of a CCLI proposal for Physics (Course,
> Curriculum and Laboratory Improvement, NSF). The goal of the proposed
> work is to create a library of modules for introductory physics which are
> designed with an eye towards the Physics Education Research. Each module
> will consist of a series of problems of increasing difficulty and varying
> 'styles' or 'representations'. Under LON-CAPA these problems could be
> used independently or as part of a sequence (sample sequences would be
> included with the work).
> 	While we have not created this sequence yet, we have a
> collection of individual problems available. They can be viewed
> independent of LON-CAPA by going to loncapa.org and clicking on Physics
> CCLI sample problems. They can be found within resource space under
> ohiou/ccliphys/DCCircuits.
> 	We are really interested on any feedback you might have on these
> problems and would love for you to take a look at them. Note that this
> set is heavy on the ranking problems. While a number of the problems
> look simplistic, they try to emphasize common concepts with which
> students have difficulty, as noted by McDermott and company.
> 	Please send any feedback, additional ideas, etc... to Mark at
> lucasm@ohio.edu
> Thanks!
