This paper, presented at the 2001 Physics Education Research Conference, demonstrates how traditional classroom demonstrations may be converted into active-learning experiences through linked multiple-choice question-and-answer sequences. Sample question sequences and worksheet materials are presented, as well as preliminary assessment data.
