This simulation shows time-dependent 1D quantum bound state wavefunctions for a number of different wells. Position, momentum, parity, energy, and current can all be viewed, with phase shown with color. Eigentstates can be selected using the energy level diagram. Multiple-energy-eigenstate wavefunctions can be created through changes in the amplitude and phase of the basis states using spinors. Postion and energy measurements can be taken, resulting in new states of the system. (less)

This simulation explores the transitions between quantum states in a number of 1D systems. The time-dependent wavefunction is displayed. An electric field resonant with the transition between states is applied and the changes in the wavefunction with time are tracked. The dipole transition probability is displayed for different initial to final state transitions, and the user may select the transition they wish to observe. (less)

The representation depicts an object moving along a "track" marked in .5 meter intervals. As the object moves, displacement-time, velocity-time, and acceleration-time graphs record the motion in real time. The user may select various types of motion to be depicted, as well as edit a velocity-time graph and have the resulting motion depicted. As the object moves, color coded vectors display its displacement, velocity and acceleration. (less)

This page provides examples of 1st Grade Measurement and Data activities aligned with the Common Core State Standards. A CCSS standard is stated and the possible activities are listed below and linked. All activities are suitable for use in Math Centers, small group, or whole class settings and are designed to elicit a range of responses and provide opportunities for students to communicate their reasoning and mathematical thinking. Instructions for each task are typed in large print and written in child-friendly language to enable students to work on activities independently after a brief introduction to the task. All files for 1st Grade Measurement and Data Activities listed are in PDF format. (less)

There are several areas of interest that can be used to characterize the work of physics education researchers. These areas include conceptual learning/conceptual difficulties, problem solving skills, epistemological issues, individual and social issues (including teaming, learning styles, gender, race and ethnicity) and the role of context in learning. This conference will focus on research that explicitly crosses over the "boundaries" of two or more of these areas. An example is the role of conceptual understanding in successful quantitative problem solving. Another example is the importance of epistemological considerations in teaching for conceptual understanding. (less)

It is our pleasure to bring to you the Proceedings of the 2002 Physics Education Research Conference, held August 7th-8th in Boise, Idaho. As was the case with the previous Proceedings, the papers in this journal represent research presented either as a poster or in an oral session. We have tried to stay true to the original goal of the proceedings to provide a snapshot of the research being performed within our community. We hope these papers will bring you insight, data, and perhaps a touch of inspiration that you can bring to your classroom or research studio. The theme of the 2002 PERC was <em>Alternative Approaches to Assessment in Physics Teaching and Research in Physics Learning</em> and you will find that topic heavily covered in the papers contained herein.
