Pitt Physics Tutorials, 1st edition, is a collection of 20 multi-step Physics tutorials that comes from Chandralekha Singh at the University of Pittsburgh. It covers introductory physics topics including mechanics as well as electricity and magnetism. Each topic has a tutorial, and a non-tutorial version of the same question. Some topics also include multiple versions of the question with differing amounts of scaffolding and guidance. Most topics also include "paired problems" - different questions that use the same concepts or principles used in the tutorial.
