**Student responses to chain rule problems in thermodynamics**
I. Founds, P. Emigh, and C. Manogue, PERC 2017 Proceedings, 136-139.

Students often struggle with the many partial derivatives used in the study of thermodynamics. This project explores how students respond to chain rule problems in an upper-level…

**Student (Mis)application of Partial Differentiation to Material Properties**
B. Bucy, J. Thompson, and D. Mountcastle, PERC 2006 Proceedings, 157-160.

Students in upper-level undergraduate thermodynamics courses were asked about the relationship between the complementary partial derivatives of the isothermal compressibility and the…

J. Tobochnik and H. Gould, Am. J. Phys.,

**76**(4&5), 353-359 (2008).This article discusses several ways of illustrating fundamental concepts in statistical and thermal physics by considering various models and algorithms. We emphasize the importance…

This applet demonstrates a histogram. The user can edit the data or choose different data samples. The user is able to guess the mean/median, deviation, and IQR. It can then display…

This applet samples words. The user can control the sample size and the number of samples. It displays the number, the word, the number of letters, whether it is long and whether or…

This applet draws a sample of senators (from Senators in 2005). The user can control the sample size and the number of samples. The applet displays the senator's name, number of…
