This summer, we had a strong presence at the national AAPT and PERC meetings held in Ann Arbor, MI. We contributed four papers to the PERC Proceedings, which are now available online. For more information, check out our blog of publications:

The papers are on: different ways of teaching Newton’s second law (Mindi Anderson, Michael Wittmann, Trevor Smith); resource creation when solving differential equations in mechanics (Katrina Black, Michael Wittmann);┬ávector addition (Jeff Hawkins, John Thompson, Michael Wittmann); and curriculum development on heat engines and the Carnot cycle (Trevor Smith, Warren Christensen, John Thompson).
