Detailed information on SDI labs, a list of users, forums for communication, Teacher's guides, and sample lab exams are now available at the Harvard Galileo Server under "Hands On Methods."
SDI Labs #1 - 3 constitute the essential core of the present material and selected sections could suffice for initial testing of the SDI method at your location. Early versions of these three, along with ref. 3 are also available on the Physics Teacher's CD ROM Toolkit, available from The Learning Team.
