Thermo-CD includes a computer or web-based instructional tool and and a workbook that serves to reach students with different learning styles and improve students' preparation for in-class activities. Thermo-CD is combined with active learning in the classroom and frequent use of Classroom Assessment Techniques (CAT). Thermo-CD is intended to replace the traditional textbook and to complement face-to-face instruction.
