I teach upper-division courses too. Do you have any resources that might be helpful to me?

Of course! We have curricular materials and innovative instructional strategies for most standard undergraduate physics content. You can browse our material by course topic or by sequences of activities. You can also check out the courses we teach and see how our material is implemented.
