This web page provides a list of learning activities for Junior level Thermodynamics and Statistical Mechanics classes. Each activity includes a description and learning goals, guides for instructors, handouts or worksheets, and reflections of instructors who have used the activity when available. Among the topics included are entropy, Maxwell equations, PV and TS diagrams, and Legendre transforms.
This material is part of the Paradigms in Physics project at Oregon State University. This work promotes the use of active student learning in upper division physics courses. Both learning materials and learning strategies are provided to help both students and instructors.
