  Description During this ½ day workshop, we will introduce you to the Physics Resource Instructional Association (PIRA) and the PIRA 200. The PIRA 200 are the 200 most important and necessary demonstrations needed to teach an introductory physics course. Each demonstration has a catalog number according to the Demonstration Classification System (DCS); we will introduce you to the system used to classify these and the bibliography that details journal articles and demonstration manuals for construction and use in the classroom. We will also show a subset of approximately 50 demonstrations explaining use, construction, acquisition of materials, and answer any questions in this highly interactive and dynamic environment. Ideas for organizing and building your demonstration collection will be presented. We especially invite faculty members teaching introductory physics to attend.
