Over the past dozen years Davidson College has produced some of the most widely used interactive curricular materials for the teaching of introductory and advanced physics courses. These materials are based on Java applets called Physlets and the new Open Source Physics (OSP) programs and applications. Participants are encouraged to bring laptops with a CD drive to the breakout sessions for hands-on explorations of this curricular material.
Partial funding was provided by NSF grant DUE-0442581.
