Concept Questions for the Photoelectric Effect with Interactive Simulation part of Examples
These are interactive lecture-demonstration questions probe student understanding of fundamental concepts in the photoelectric effect.

Work: pre, during and post class questions part of Examples
This series of questions before instruction, in-class peer instruction, and post-instruction allow students to iterate and improve their understanding of work incrementally.

Think-Pair-Share Analysis of the Operation of a Metal Detector part of Examples
The activity presents a Think-Pair-Share analysis of a metal detector including a simulation.

The Transformer: Simulation Lecture Demo part of Examples
The activity presents an interactive lecture demonstration of the operation of a transformer using a simulation.

Helping Students Discover Total Internal Reflection part of Examples
Students learn the basic relationship of Snell's Law, practice applying it to a situation, then are given another situation where it "doesn't work."??? This situation turns out to be one in which total internal reflection occurs. Students are then shown what happens with classroom apparatus.

Using an Applet to Demonstrate the Sampling Distribution of an F-statistic part of Examples
This visualization activity combines student data collection with the use of an applet to enhance the understanding of the distributions of mean square treatment (MST), mean square error (MSE) as well as their ratio, an F-distribution. Students will see theoretical distributions of the mean square treatment, mean square error and their ratio and how they compare to the histograms generated by the simulated data.

Learning to Think about Gravity: Newtons's Theory part of Examples
The purpose of this exercise is to learn how to think about gravity, learn about scientific methodology, and transition from the Aristotelian to the Newtonian understanding of gravity.

The Evolution of Pearsons Correlation Coefficient/Exploring Relationships between Two Quantitative Variables part of Examples
The evolution of ideas is often ignored in the teaching of statistics. It is important to show students how definitions and formulas evolve. This activity describes a fairly straightforward activity of how measures of association can evolve.

Using an Applet to Demonstrate a Sampling Distribution part of Examples
Introducing sampling distribution through cooperative learning among students using a group activity. Afterwards, use the sampling distribution applet to illustrate.
