 Current-Carrying Coils in Magnetic Fields Lab This lesson plan contains instructions for conducting an inquiry-based lab to investigate current-carrying coils in magnetic fields. Students construct a simple galvanometer from film cannisters and other readily-obtainable materials. The author includes follow-up questions to stimulate learning. This item is part of a larger set of lesson plans in the SMILE collection of resources. http://mypages.iit.edu/~smile/ph8720.html
 SMILE Series and Parallel Circuits Lab This website contains instructions for a lab that explores the properties of series and parallel circuits. The instructions include materials needed, procedures for the students to follow, expected results, and a brief discussion of the physical concepts involved. http://mypages.iit.edu/~smile/ph9113.html
 SMILE Electromagnets Lab This site contains instructions for a fairly simple lab or demonstration using electromagnets. The electromagnets are made with nails, copper wire, and batteries. The lab includes a list of needed materials, the procedure that the students should follow, and a brief discussion of the physical concepts involved. http://mypages.iit.edu/~smile/ph9604.html
 A Summary of Students' Mental Models and Their Applications in Contexts Pertaining to Newton's II Law In this study, presented at the 2002 Physics Education Research Conference, authors describe their investigation of students' use of Newton's II law in mechanics and electricity and magnetism contexts. They interviewed 16 students in a two-semester calculus-based physics course and found students' answers are consistent with two principal mental models and a combination of these two. The authors... http://people.rit.edu/svfsps/perc2002/Itza.doc
 Context Map: A method to represent the interactions between students' learning and multiple context factors This paper, presented at the 2002 Physics Education Research Conference, describes a study intended to understand middle school students' cognitive conflict levels when they were confronted with anomalous situations. In this research, two physics contexts, mechanics and electricity were used. In each context, two test items, one for quantitative demonstration and the other for qualitative... http://people.rit.edu/svfsps/perc2002/Lee.doc
