  Description This workshop will introduce participants to a modeling-based approach to problem solving, a pedagogy that enables students to attain significant expert-like improvement of their problem solving skills that transfers to a subsequent E&M course, as well as significantly more expert-like attitudes towards science, particularly in Problem-Solving self confidence. The workshop goal is to enable participants to introduce some or all of this pedagogy into their courses with the help of our open source integrated version of LON-CAPA, ANDES, and a Wiki-Text that incorporates MAPS into a standard introductory mechanics syllabus. Workshop participants will sample the various teaching materials for in-class use and will participate in some innovative activities for class. The integrated environment will be demonstrated. We seek users/collaborators for part or all of our materials, which can be freely modified.
