Website Detail Page

written by Wolfgang Christian and Mario Belloni
This page is part of a collection of physics applets which accompany the book 'Physlets: Teaching Physics with Interactive Curricular Material' by Christian and Belloni.  It contains a set of applet-based concept questions for use in physics classrooms.  The questions are intended to probe student understanding and elicit misconceptions.  Electronic student response systems (clickers) are often used to allow anonymous "voting" on the correct answer.  Topics within this collection are mechanics and electromagnetism; many of them are appropriate for high school physics.    

This page is part of a much larger collection of applets and related curriculum materials developed specifically for teaching with Physlets, as well as a wide range of tools for input and display of information.
