An Investigation on the Impact of Implementing Visual Quantum Mechanics on Student Learning and Student Instructor Beliefs 

written by Lawrence T. Escalada

Aspects of the Visual Quantum Mechanics instructional materials have been adapted and implemented into a university physical science course for pre-service elementary education majors and various high school physics classrooms.  These materials utilize a learning cycle pedagogy involving interactive, simulation computer programs and inexpensive devices to introduce basic quantum physics ideas within the context of fundamental physics concepts.  A brief description of how these materials and strategies were adapted and implemented in high school classrooms will be provided.  The results found on student conceptual learning and student/instructor attitudes and beliefs will also be briefly discussed.
