A Symmetry Approach to Time Dilation.
Dunne, Peter
Physics Education, v30 n3 p171-77 May 1995
Outlines an approach to introduce students to special relativity using a discussion of stopclocks and measurement of the transmission of light pulses to produce a natural derivation of the time dilation factor. Aims at providing a frame of reference from which they can be tempted to explore special relativity at a more sophisticated level. (JRH)
