Parables of Physics and a Quantum Romance
Machacek, A. C.
Physics Education, v49 n1 p33-36 Jan 2014
Teachers regularly use stories to amplify the concepts taught and to encourage student engagement. The literary form of a parable is particularly suitable for classroom use, and examples are given, including a longer one intended to stimulate discussion on the nature of quantum physics (and the wave-particle duality in particular).
