WebAssign: Using WebAssign to Manage your Lab Sequence
  Location: TBA
  Date: 8/2/11
  Time: 12:15 p.m. - 1:15 p.m.
  Price: Member: $0.00
Nonmember: $0.00
  Sponsor: WebAssign
  Leader(s): John Risley
  Co-Leader(s): N/A
  Description: Since 1997, WebAssign has been the online homework system of choice for the introductory physics lecture courses. Through our partnerships with every major publisher, WebAssign supports over 100 introductory physics textbooks with precoded, assignable questions and advanced learning tools. WebAssign For Your Labs is a simple solution to deliver WebAssign’s same powerful course tools already in use at over 1700 schools, but with your own original lab experiments as the source material. We don’t expect to replace the traditional lab sequence with virtual lab experiments, and you don’t need computer stations in your laboratory. WebAssign For Your Labs works with your existing experiments and lab materials to let you collect and instantly grade students lab results; provide immediate guidance and feedback for students; and standardize grading across all lab sessions. Learn how WebAssign can help you increase student preparedness and decrease student cost in the introductory lab sequence.

Vernier Software: New Data Collection Tools for Physics
  Location: TBA
  Date: 8/2/11
  Time: 4:00 p.m.-6:00 p.m.
  Price: Member: $0.00
Nonmember: $0.00
  Sponsor: Vernier
  Leader(s): David Vernier
  Co-Leader(s): John Gastineau
  Description: Attend this hands‑on, drop-in workshop to learn about new data collection tools from Vernier Software & Technology. If you need an overview of data collection, we'll be happy to show you the basics. • Give the new Centripetal Force Apparatus a spin. Collect data either with LabQuest or Logger Pro, and see how easy it is to do this otherwise difficult experiment. • Check out the activities in the new Advanced Physics with Vernier–Mechanics book. • Use our Rotary Motion Sensor with its Accessory Kit to look at rotational dynamics. • Explore the Audio Function Generator on Vernier LabQuest. • Use our new Power Amplifier to study electrical circuits or to investigate resonance. • Experiment with our Optics Expansion Kit, including the new Color Mixer Kit. • Use the Vernier Spectrometer to collect emission spectra of our new Spectrum Tube Systems. • Use the LabQuest Mini interface with Logger Pro. • Use our Bumper and Launcher kit with the Vernier Dynamics System, including the new 2.2 meter track. • Try out some of the engineering/physics projects in our two great new books: Hands on Introduction to NI LabVIEW with Vernier and Engineering Projects with Vernier.
