PALS is an acronym for Physics Active Learning Sessions that aims at improving student understanding of calculus based introductory physics concepts and guiding students toward developing good habits for problem solving that enables critical thinking. These sessions are free and nonobligatory to students enrolled in courses supported by PALS, such as PHYS 2101. Each session is led by an undergraduate physics major that has demonstrated mastery of the material and trained on how to facilitate an active and engaging learning experience.

PALS was proposed by undergraduate physics majors participating in Physics Undergraduate Mentoring Program (PUMP). Learn more about PUMP.
