Introducing Filters and Amplifiers Using a Two-Channel Light Organ
Zavrel, Erik; Sharpsteen, Eric
Physics Teacher, v53 n8 p478-481 Nov 2015
In an era when many students carry iPods, iPhones, and iPads, physics teachers are realizing that in order to continue to inspire and convey the amazing things made possible by a few fundamental principles, they must expand laboratory coverage of electricity and circuits beyond the conventional staples of constructing series and parallel arrangements of light bulbs and confirming Kirchhoff's laws. Indeed, physics teachers are already incorporating smartphones into their laboratory activities in an effort to convey concepts in a more contemporary and relatable manner. As part of Cornell's Learning Initiative in Medicine and Bioengineering (CLIMB), we set out to design and implement an engaging curriculum to introduce high school physics students to filters and amplifiers.
