AbstractThese worksheets provide student exercises in finding and evaluating web resources for physics classes. The activities include web searches on particular topics or questions that arise in class and careful evaluation of web resources identified by the instructors. Students are encouraged to consider issues such as the author, hosting organization, time of updates, and functionality of the web site. General questions about information reliability on the web are provided in the final assignment. An assignment on plagiarism is also included. These materials were developed for a class in Mechanics, but could easily be modified for any topic.
