Abstract
The science education in universities has several deferring moments for the general studentpopulation outside of the Physics/Astronomy fields or STEM in general. A large contribution tothat comes from the high cost of the textbooks that is typical for the introductory physics andastronomy courses. Another is the lack of supporting class materials, such as audio-video materialsand support tools for activities. This poster will cover the class transformation activities under theALG grant to adopt the free textbooks from OpenStax for the intro Physics 1-2 and Astronomy 1-2 sequences, and to create the supporting materials such as presentations, tests, audio-videomaterials, and in-browser run online tools for the class activities as applicable to the courses listedabove. Adaptations to online or hybrid teaching style will be also noted, and students’ surveyresults will be included as well.
