i think it looks like a good set, but I couldn't see the pictures in 
questions 2, 3, and 4. Question 1 shows up fine.

>	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
>	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.
