Using Just-in-Time Teaching and Physlets in Quantum Mechanics

Mario Belloni, Larry Cain, and Wolfgang Christian

Abstract: We propose to develop curricular material in support of a one-semester, intermediate course in quantum mechanics. This curricular material uses the Just-in-Time Teaching (JiTT) technique and, where applicable, Physlets to actively engage students outside of the classroom to enhance their in-class experience. Twenty such JiTT exercises will be developed stressing visualization of quantum mechanical concepts with the goal of achieving better student understanding of these concepts.
