Measuring voltage and current in a DC circuit part of Interactive Lectures:Examples

These exercises target student misconceptions about how to properly measure voltage and current in simple DC circuits by letting them investigate different meter arrangements without fear of damaging equipment. These activities also are designed to lead to other investigations about simple DC circuits.

Concept Questions for the Photoelectric Effect with Interactive Simulation part of Interactive Lectures:Examples

These are interactive lecture-demonstration questions probe student understanding of fundamental concepts in the photoelectric effect.

Interactive Lecture Questions for Single Slit Diffraction part of Interactive Lectures:Examples

This is a set of interactive lecture demonstration questions designed to probe student understanding of single-slit diffraction.

Learning to Think about Gravity II: Aristotle to Einstein part of Interactive Lectures:Examples

The purpose of this exercise is to learn how to think about gravity, learn about scientific methodology, and transition from the Aristotelian to Newtonian to Einsteinian understanding of gravity.

Projectile and Satellite Orbits part of Interactive Lectures:Examples

Gravitation introductory activity with interesting animation. The activity allows the student to revile the connection between the initial speed and the shape of satellite orbit.

Science on a Skateboard - Applications of Newton's Third Law part of Interactive Lectures:Examples

A think, pair, share activity with Socratic questioning to help students begin to understand rocket propulsion.

Using an Applet to Demonstrate Sampling Distributions of Regression Coefficients part of Interactive Lectures:Examples

This applet simulates a linear regression plot and the corresponding intercept and slope histograms. The program allows the user to change settings such as slope, standard deviation, sample size, and more.

Using an Applet to Demonstrate a Sampling Distribution part of Interactive Lectures:Examples

Introducing sampling distribution through cooperative learning among students using a group activity. Afterwards, use the sampling distribution applet to illustrate.

Psychic test part of Interactive Lectures:Examples

Show relative frequency converging to true probability by testing the psychic ability of your students.

Count the Fs: Why a Sample instead of a Census? part of Interactive Lectures:Examples

This interactive lecture activity motivates the need for sampling. "Why sample, why not just take a census?" Under time pressure, students count the number of times the letter F appears in a paragraph. The activity demonstrates that a census, even when it is easy to take, may not give accurate information. Under the time pressure measurement errors are more frequently made in the census rather than in a small sample.
