Interactive Lecture Questions for Single Slit Diffraction part of 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 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 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.

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.

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.

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

Models of the Hydrogen Atom part of Examples
In this interactive lecture, models of the hydrogen atom are explored using an online Java applet. The exploration leads to qualitative and quantitative analysis of energy transitions.

Modeling emf, Potential Difference, and Internal Resistance part of 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.
