**Student understanding of basic probability concepts in an upper-division thermal physics course**
M. Loverude,
PERC 2009 Proceedings, 189-192.

As part of ongoing research on student understanding in upper-division thermal physics, we developed a number of simple diagnostic questions designed to probe understanding of basic…

**Student Estimates of Probability and Uncertainty in Advanced Laboratory and Statistical Physics Courses**
D. Mountcastle, B. Bucy, and J. Thompson,
PERC 2007 Proceedings, 152-155.

Equilibrium properties of macroscopic systems are highly predictable as n, the number of particles approaches and exceeds Avogadro's number; theories of statistical physics depend on…

**What Is Entropy? Advanced Undergraduate Performance Comparing Ideal Gas Processes**
B. Bucy, J. Thompson, and D. Mountcastle,
PERC 2005 Proceedings, 81-84.

We report data on upper-level student understanding of entropy and the Second Law of Thermodynamics when comparing the isothermal and free expansions of an ideal gas. Data from pre-…

**Assessing Student Understanding of Partial Derivatives in Thermodynamics**
J. Thompson, B. Bucy, and D. Mountcastle,
PERC 2005 Proceedings, 77-80.

We are engaged in a research project to study teaching and learning in upper-level thermal physics courses. We have begun to explore student functional understanding of mathematical…
