These materials have been designed
to provide an improved learning environment for students. By
providing a setting focused on active engagement and conceptual
understanding in conjunction with the traditional lecture setting,
we hope to help students learn the physics of quantum mechanics
more effectively. For a description of the manner in which these
materials can be used in the classroom, click on the link for
"Instructional Philosophy" at the bottom of the page.

Interactive classroom activities designed
to help students have a fundamental understanding of critical
Real world problems that highlight applications
of basic quantum phenomena
Conceptual questions designed to encourage
student participation and provide feedback to the instructor
about what the students are thinking.
Conceptual evaluation focuses on student
understanding of the physics from the tutorials and is designed
to complement traditional mathematical problems.
