From Compass to Hard Drive--Integrated Activities for Studying Magnets
Dean, J.; Allwood, D. A.
Physics Education, v49 n6 p663-670 Nov 2014
We describe a range of practical activities that allows students to investigate the properties and applications of magnets. The activities can be used in isolation or used together to build a rounded understanding of the subject area. The activities include simple demonstrations using common or inexpensive equipment, hands-on experiments for small groups, and interactive problem solving suitable for whole classes. These can be tailored for students in either primary or secondary education.
