Operators and Measurements in Paradigms in Physics, Part 2
  Location: HC 3028
  Date: Monday, Aug.1
  Time: 6:40 PM -6:50 PM
  Author: Elizabeth Gire, University of Memphis
  Co-Author(s): Corinne A. Manogue , David McIntyre , Janet Tate , Dedra Demaree
  Abstract: The Paradigms team at Oregon State University has developed a series of activities that emphasize quantum measurements. Some of these activities specifically target students' conceptual understanding of the role of operators in computations related to measurements. We will discuss evidence of how these activities help students develop productive conceptual understandings of operators. This evidence is gathered from classroom video of students working through the activities in small group, whole class discussions, and clinical interviews, as well as students' homework and exams.
