The University Modeling Instruction curriculum project has been a long term project involving a number of contributors. University Modeling Instruction has its origins in the High School Modeling Physics project from Arizona State University headed by David Hestenes. In 1998 Dwain Desbien and Eric Brewe took up the effort of adapting the materials from the High School Modeling Project to be suited for university physics classes. Since that time, curriculum development has happened in multiple strands at Florida International University’s Physics Education Research Group, as well as with Dwain Desbien at Estrella Mountain Community College.
