American Journal of Physics
written by Peter S. Shaffer and Lillian C. McDermott
This is the second of two closely related articles that together describe how results from research can be used as a guide for curriculum development. The first article demonstrates how the investigation of student understanding of electric circuits by the Physics Education Group has contributed to the building of a research base. This second article describes how the group has drawn on this resource, both in developing a curriculum for laboratory-based instruction and in adapting this curriculum to fit the constraints of a traditional introductory course. Also discussed is how, in turn, development and implementation of the curriculum has enriched the research base.
