My student Andi Pascarella just finished her Ph.D. with a thesis that studied the effectivenenss of the computer-based homework system called CAPA, which we have been using in the inroductory physics coursed for the last 4 or 5 years.

Now that the project is complete, my main activity (and an all consuming one) is to finish the second edition of the Taylor-Zafiratos book on "Modern Physics" and the 1st edition of my book on "Classical Mechanics," both of which are supposed to de done by the end of this school year.
