A New Model Course in
Applied Quantum Physics

A set of instructor resources for
introductory modern physics and quantum mechanics

Welcome to the web-based version of A New Model Course in Applied Quantum Physics.

The materials in this web site are not intended to be a stand-alone course but rather a set of resources for instructors of introductory quantum mechanics and modern physics. Information on understanding how students learn the physics and materials for use in the classroom are included.

If you are interested in pilot testing any of these materials, please contact us. At no cost to you, we will give you

  • a CD containing the materials,
  • logistic support, and
  • other important information and materials.

In exchange, we ask you to give us feedback. Please contact Richard Steinberg if you would like to receive a CD.

Some of the links within this site refer to other locations on the WWW. These are noted with a (WWW). Some of the materials on this site are password protected, but the password is available upon request from Michael Wittmann. 


The materials here are in preliminary form and subject to change.

If you have used these materials and would like to fill out an online survey to give us feedback, please click here.

Note: To view materials on this web site, you may need Adobe Acrobat Reader (WWW), Apple QuickTime (WWW), the Macromedia Shockwave (WWW) browser plugin, and (for Macintosh users) the HotJava (WWW) browswer from Sun.

The work for this project was conducted by Edward F. Redish, Richard N. Steinberg, Michael C. Wittmann, and the Physics Education Research Group at the University of Maryland and was sponsored by the National Science Foundation and the Fund for the Improvement of Post Secondary Education.

All feedback on the materials is appreciated. Please e-mail comments to redish@physics.umd.edu,
