Physics2000 Workshop
  Location: Salon Ballroom I
  Date: Monday, July 19
  Time: 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
  Price: Member: $0.00
Nonmember: $0.00
  Sponsor: Physics2000
  Leader(s): Elisha Huggins
  Co-Leader(s): N/A
  Description: Come to the popular Physics2000 workshop where we show you how to teach special relativity in the first week of an introductory physics course, and then how to fit 20th and 21st century physics into your course. We also show you how to introduce Fourier analysis using the free MacScope audio oscilloscope program (that works on Macs and Windows), ending up with an intuitive explanation of the time-energy form of the uncertainty principle. This approach is followed in the new non-calculus version of the Physics2000 text, as well as the calculus version that we introduced in January 2000.

MasteringPhysics/MasteringAstronomy Lunch & Learn
  Location: TBA
  Date: Monday, July 19
  Time: 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m.
  Price: Member: $0.00
Nonmember: $0.00
  Sponsor: Pearson
  Leader(s): Kerry Chapman
  Co-Leader(s): N/A
  Description: Pearson invites you to a lunchtime workshop to learn about all of the new and exciting features available in MasteringPhysics and MasteringAstronomy. The Mastering platform is the most effective and widely used online tutorial, homework, and assessment system for the sciences. If you are new to Mastering, come see how you can engage your students and truly help them learn through Mastering’s individualized feedback and coaching. Learn about Mastering’s data-supported efficacy and ability to easily demonstrate learning outcomes in your class. If you are a Mastering user, come to see all of the new features and content such as PhET Simulation Tutorials (MasteringPhysics) and WorldWide Telescope Tours (MasteringAstronomy). We’ll also talk about best practices for setting up courses, customizing assignments, and using the new tools in the interface. Lunch will be provided and we welcome you to bring your questions. Please contact kerry.chapman@pearson.com to reserve a seat as space is limited.

Explore Sonography with 3B Scientific
  Location: Salon Ballroom III
  Date: Monday, July 19
  Time: 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
  Price: Member: $0.00
Nonmember: $0.00
  Sponsor: American 3B
  Leader(s): Jessics Norica
  Co-Leader(s): Johannes Recht
  Description: Medical practitioners rely on the principles of sonography when performing all types of ultrasonic procedures. In this workshop, we will use ultrasonic equipment to determine the speed of sound propagated by longitudinal and transverse waves in solids. Longitudinal sound waves are determined by the elastic module of the solid when transverse waves are determined by the shear modulus of the solid. Therefore, the elastic constant of the solid can be determined by measuring the speed of the two wave types. After the demonstration, participants will be given the opportunity to ask questions and perform the experiment. Experiment guides and manuals will be available for all participants. The 3B Scientific Ultrasonic Echoscope and accessories will be utilized to perform the experiment
