- This resource is currently being used in Wright State University Lake Campus
- This resource is less than one year from being suitable for in any introductory college course, complete with 4 exams, writing assignments, and a final exam.
- Labs are also available But most are under construction (and badly in need of improvement).

- Someday we need to make the dashboard at Wright State University Lake Campus/Phy1060-2016-1 available. Perhaps this could be done most quickly by rewriting the source code in an open source language like Python (currently Matlab/Excel are used).
- This page contains a collection of readings from Wikiversity and Wikipedia, sample exams for classroom use, and the bank of questions from which these exams were constructed that serves as a very student-friendly "study guide" for each exam. Instructors may obtain multiple versions of these exams for classroom use by leaving a message at User_talk:Guy_vandegrift. The "dashboard" at Wright_State_University_Lake_Campus/Phy1060-2016-1 can help the instructor supervise the students' improvement of the course by developing quiz questions (with full explanations), labs, and by editing the reading materials. With all this work done by Wikiversity, instructors will have time focusing on helping the students learn.
Students are required to submit questions for future versions of this course. This summer (2015) the questions will not be placed on the final exam, but that policy might change next time this course is taught.
Since these exams are posted on Wikiversity, they must be treated as samples not to be administered to students. To obtain randomized versions of these exams (with different questions), leave a message at User talk:Guy vandegrift] or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Instructors will be required to provide documentation to the proper authorities showing that they are teaching the course and are affiliated with a learning institution.
