published by the Physics Education Technology Project
This page contains an interactive lecture developed specifically for use with the PhET simulation "Quantum Wave Interference".  It consists of lecture notes and concept questions for a 30-minute introduction to probability and randomness in the context of the double slit experiment.   It may be downloaded as a Power Point file and adapted for use in either an introductory class or a sophomore-level Modern Physics class.  

This item was developed by members of the PhET research team using principles from physics education research.
