# ConcepTests

ConcepTests are
questions designed to encourage interactions in the classroom about
mathematical concepts. Pioneered by Eric Mazur for physics, they are now
available for use in classes in chemistry, astronomy, and mathematics.

GoodQuestions
Project

The GoodQuestions
project seeks to improve calculus instruction by adapting two methods developed
in physics instruction — ConcepTests
and Just-in-Time-Teaching.GoodQuestions is a pedagogical strategy that aims to raise the visibility of
the key concepts and to promote a more active learning environment.

#### ConcepTests available to
instructors using Hughes Hallet et.al “Caculus” at this website.
