The purpose of this research is to ascertain the performances and perceptions of the students in hybrid studio format. This format retains the large lecture component but combines recitation and laboratory instruction into studio physics. in this research, problem solving strategy survey was administered by pre/post-test to evaluate students' strategies in problem solving. The data on student performance and conceptual understanding was collected by comparing the grades of the students enrolled in physics course during two semesters. Also, surveys about HSF were used to collect students' opinions about the course, and multiple interviews were performed with volunteer students about HSF. The results of the performance data showed that students performed better on LON-CAPA problems and hands-on activities than on written assignments and exams. Student interviews represented that students found the interactive-engagement method of learning physics to be a positive experience. They liked the integration of homework and laboratory activities, working in groups, and having the opportunity to interact, individually, with instructors, in short, the teaching-learning method presented here, HSF, had a positive impact on the problem-solving skills of students and opinions about the physics course.
