written by the Kansas State Physics Education Research Group and Dean A. Zollman
This resource discusses wave interference and quantum waves associated with particles.  A shockwave simulation gives an illustration of the quantum double-slit experiment.  Questions lead the students through the dependence of the wave interference on masses, slit separation, and momentum.  A connection to classical objects is made.
