Improving Students' Understanding of Addition of Angular Momentum
  Location: KFC Courts
  Date: Tuesday, Aug.02
  Time: 6:00PM - 6:45PM
  Author: Chandralekha Singh, University of Pittsburgh
  Co-Author(s): Guangtian Zhu
  Abstract: We are investigating the difficulties that upper-level students taking quantum mechanics have in learning about the addition of angular momentum. To help improve student understanding of these concepts, we have developed quantum interactive learning tutorials (QuILTs) and tools for peer-instruction. We will discuss the common students' difficulties and the effectiveness of research-based tools in improving students' understanding of these concepts. This work is supported by the National Science Foundation grant NSF-PHY-0855424.
