dc.description.abstractThis paper describes the comparison of the Matter and Interactions and traditional physics curriculums. The language, textbooks, and existing assessment instruments of the curriculums were the focus of the comparison. Language in the textbooks was compared using two readability tests. Textbooks and existing assessment instruments were analyzed to determine di fferences between the curriculums. There was no signi ficant difference in readability between the M&I textbook and Raymond Serway's introductory textbook Physics for Scientists and Engineers. Analysis of the assessment instruments and textbooks determined that the M&I curriculum goals and topics prepare students for further education in physics, whereas Serway's textbook and curriculum better prepares students for other fi elds in science and engineering.en_US
