View Resource PhET: Introduction to Static Electricity using Electric Field Hockey and Charges and Fields

This inquiry-based lesson plan is intended to be used in tandem with the PhET Electric Field Hockey simulation. Students place electric charges on a simulated ice field to guide a hockey puck into a goal. As they investigate charge interaction, the teacher integrates vector addition and free-body diagrams to help students understand strength and direction of the electric field around a charged...

View Resource PhET: Electric Field Hockey

This webpage contains an activity that allows users to guide a charged object, or "puck", through a maze using the electric field created by point charges placed by the user. Options exist to control the mass and sign of the charge of the puck. There are four levels of difficulty that change the barrier placement. Barriers do not affect the fields, only define the path of the puck. The user can...

View Resource Special Relativity

This web site, created by Andrew Hamilton of the University of Colorado, Boulder, presents the fundamental concepts of special relativity along with some more advanced topics. The relativity postulates are used to explain consequences of the theory, such as time dilation, finite maximum speed, and the Lorentz Transformation. Images and animations are used extensively.

View Resource PhET Simulations: Lunar Lander

This webpage contains an applet that simulates the control of a Lunar Lander. The user is must touch down gently on the lunar surface. Key commands control the thrust and the orientation of the Lander. Extra points for soft and difficult landings. The simulations shows the altitude, velocity, and thrust of the Lander. This page also contains sample learning goals as well as user-submitted ideas...

View Resource The Learning Assistant Model for Teacher Education in Science and Technology

This article explains how the Learning Assistant (undergraduate TAs) model at the physics department of the University of Colorado facilitates course transformation and serves to recruit future physics teachers. The effect of the Learning Assistant experience on their content knowledge is described, along with their interest in the learning processes of the students in their classes. Other...
