Energy measurement resources in spins-first and position-first quantum mechanics
written by Gina Passante
Research into student understanding of quantum mechanics has primarily focused on the identification of student difficulties and the development of curriculum that can help improve student learning. Most of this work has been performed in courses using a position-first instructional paradigm. Recently, there has been increase in the number of instructors choosing to present material in an alternate order: spins-first. In this work, we makes steps towards answering the question of whether or not the instructional paradigm has an impact on student thinking about energy measurement. We use a resources lens to analyze the different tools and methods students are using to solve questions.
