Main Document

Making Quantum Mechanics Visual and Interactive 

written by Wolfgang Christian

This presentation describes class-tested curricular material that use interactive Open Source Physics (OSP) based curricular material in support the teaching of quantum mechanics. The material addresses both quantitative and conceptual difficulties encountered by many students in such topics as wave function shape, momentum space, time evolution, and classical/quantum correlations.
