ABSTRACT
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the students' motivational beliefs and use of learning strategies in the Introductory Calculus-Based Physics II course using the studio physics model, also to examine the students' academic performances and the relationship among the variables. This research was conducted with 302 students in USA during spring 2009 semester. Research data were collected with Motivated Strategies for Learning Questionnaire (MSLQ) and students' grades obtained from LON-CAPA problems, LON-CAPA/written homework, hands-on activities, and exam. According to the results of the present research, it can be said that the use of the studio physics was effective on the achievement, motivational beliefs, and use of learning strategies of the students. Thus, this promising learning method will encourage the educators to replace the traditional instruction methods with student-centered, interactive learning methods.
