Bergen University College reconstructed its undergraduate Rigid Body Dynamics course. This was more than a typical course redesign. It was a philosophical reconstruction of both content and delivery based on modern mathematics and emerging visualization technologies. Assessment suggests that the reconstructed course articulates the underlying mathematics, motivates students by providing solutions to realistic problems in engineering, increases students’ conceptual understanding of dynamics and reduces student attrition in engineering.
