Activity Based Physics Tutorials, Volume 2: Modern Physics, The Physics Suite
February 2005, ©2004
- simple experiments using computer data acquisition tools,
- basic observations enhanced by the use of digitized videotape of real phenomena,
- analysis of computer simulations that aid in visualization of abstract ideas
- conceptually rich problems.
The Activity-Based Tutorials are designed to accompany and enhance lecture instruction. They have been developed using a cycle of physics education research, including investigations into student learning on a given topic, development, and revision of the materials based on evaluation after use in the classroom.
In Activity-Based Tutorials Volume 2: Modern Physics, tutorials exist for topics in probability, quantum tunneling, and conductivity.
Activity-Based Tutorials are a component of the Physics Suite. The Physics Suite is a collection of materials created by a group of curriculum developers and educational reformers known as the Activity Based Physics Group. The Physics Suite contains a broad array of curricular materials that are based on physics education research.
