The Physics Teacher
written by Robert J. Beichner, Jon D. H. Gaffney, and Mary Bridget Kustusch
Opportunities to learn are everywhere, often in overlooked places, such as in the Universal Product Code (UPC) that is used for barcodes on nearly everything we buy. In this paper, we describe an engaging and meaningful activity in which these barcodes were used in an introductory calculus-based physics class.
