Optics With Lights & Color: Bright Ideas
  Location: Nathan Hale
  Date: Monday, Feb. 15
  Time: 10:45 AM - 12:33 PM
  Price: Member: $0.00
Nonmember: $0.00
  Sponsor: CPO Science
  Leader(s): Erik Benton
  Co-Leader(s): N/A
  Description: CPO Science's new Optics with Light & Color kit comes with LED flashlights, a laser, convex and concave lenses, a prism, diffraction grating glasses, polarizing filters, and more. Mix colors of light, learn about human vision, measure angles of reflection and refraction, create interference patterns, calculate wavelengths of light, and experience total internal reflection with a laser and prism. We'll touch on current technological applications of these topics as we use hands-on equipment to study the time honored properties of optics, light, and color in new ways.

Introductory Physics for the 21st Century
  Location: Park Tower 8210
  Date: Monday, Feb. 15
  Time: 12:33 PM - 1:30 PM
  Price: Member: $0.00
Nonmember: $0.00
  Sponsor: John Wiley & Sons
  Leader(s):
  Co-Leader(s): N/A
  Description: John Wiley & Sons is pleased to announce the release of the third edition of Matter & Interactions by Ruth Chabay and Bruce Sherwood. This two-semester, calculus-based physics course offers students a remarkably coherent introduction to mechanics, thermal physics and electricity and magnetism by integrating elements of contemporary physics, including the atomic structure of matter, and by emphasizing the use of fundamental physics principles to construct models of physical systems that predict or explain their structure or behavior. This workshop will discuss many of the most striking and effective features of this curriculum. It will also present the positive experiences of faculty at the growing number large research universities that are using Matter & Interactions to teach introductory physics to all of their engineering and science students. The workshop leader is a professor of physics at Purdue University, one of the institutions using Matter & Interactions in this way.

Physics for Everyday Thinking (PET) and Physical Science for Everyday Thinking (PSET)
  Location: Balcony D
  Date: Monday, Feb. 15
  Time: 12:33 PM - 1:30 PM
  Price: Member: $0.00
Nonmember: $0.00
  Sponsor: It's About Time
  Leader(s): Fred Goldberg
  Co-Leader(s): N/A
  Description: PET and PSET are one-semester guided inquiry courses for prospective and practicing elementary and middle school teachers and general education college students. These courses focus on the themes of interactions conservation of energy, Newton’s Law and (for PSET) atomic-molecular theory. They include Learning About Learning activities where students either reflect on their own learning, the learning of younger children (using elementary videos), or the learning of scientists (the history of nature of science).
