Intuitive Quantum Physics
Sponsored in part by NSF grants DUE-0410895.
By using these materials, you are agreeing to participate
in a larger research project which requires that we track course use of the
materials and student learning in the course.
We base our license on the Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 2.5 License modified to include a share-back criterion:
Our modification of "share-back" includes that you agree to:
- send Jeffrey T. Morgan or Michael C. Wittmann an email telling us
that you are using the materials.
Refer to the contact information at the bottom of the page for addresses.
In your email, be as specific as possible about which materials you have
used (or plan to use) in your class and give us a report on what you did
(if possible). This is extremely important to us as we modify materials
to be most appropriate for users.
- "re-publish" any modifications you make by sending them back to us
We will update our materials if needed, or we will publish your version
in parallel here online. It helps to have descriptions of the modifications
so that future users can gain insight into your work.
By agreeing to the user license, you are helping us in our curriculum
development and ensuring that high quality materials are created. We retain
all publication rights to these materials, but are happy to share them as
broadly as possible.
Intuitive Quantum Physics materials are modeled after and inspired by:
- Tutorials in Introductory Physics, L.C. McDermott, P.S. Shaffer, and the Physics Education Group at the U. of Washington (Prentice Hall, 2002)
- Activity-Based Tutorials, M.C. Wittmann, R.N. Steinberg, E.F. Redish, and the University of Maryland Physics Education Research Group (Wiley, 2004 and 2005)
- Learning How to Learn Science: Physics for Bioscience Majors, Redish, E. F., Hammer, D., & Elby, A. (NSF grant REC008-7519, 2001-2003)
Lead developers were Jeffrey T. Morgan and Michael C. Wittmann. Co-developers were (in alphabetical order) Katrina E. Black, David E. Clark, Roger E. Feeley, Eleanor C. Sayre, and R. Padraic Springuel.
Additional support was given by the University of Maine Department of Physics and Astronomy and the Center for Science and Mathematics Education Research.
