Graph Predictions for Position, Velocity and Acceleration part of Just in Time Teaching:Examples

Graphical Just-in-Time-Teaching questions for use before classes in which students explore position, velocity and acceleration graphs.

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.

Modeling emf, Potential Difference, and Internal Resistance part of Interactive Lectures:Examples

Through class discussion and think-pair-share questions, this activity helps students come to understand the difference between emf and potential difference in electrical circuits. These concepts are broached within the context of internal resistance of batteries.

Using an Applet to Demonstrate the Sampling Distribution of an F-statistic part of Interactive Lectures: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 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 the Newtonian understanding of gravity.

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.

Motion Concepts: Displacement, velocity, & acceleration graphs part of Interactive Lectures:Examples

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.

Work: pre, during and post class questions part of Interactive Lectures: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.
