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.
