View Resource Is it Finally Time to Implement Curriculum S?

This article describes the need for improved physics education of K-12 teachers and suggests "Curriculum S" as a possible partial solution. "Curriculum S" or Curriculum synthesis intends to serve students who want to study physics as background for something other than physics research. The document presents some models of "Curriculum S" programs proposed at the Princeton Conference in December,...

View Resource The Effect of Introducing Computers into Introductory Physics Problem-Solving Laboratories

This doctoral thesis dissertation from the University of Minnesota studied the effects of the computer instruction in the physics classroom. This study examined the effects of introducing a computerized data-acquisition and analysis tool into this pedagogy as a problem-solving tool for students to use in laboratory. Possible interactions with gender were also examined. Overall, the differences...

View Resource Research-based Instructional Software in Modern Physics

In teaching mathematics or science, understanding how to incorporate instructional technology and evaluate its impact is of great importance. We report on how we are using physics education research both as a guide to the way we develop computer-based curriculum and as a means of assessment. The context of our study is modern physics, which is a subject being taught in a growing number of classes...
