"RealTime Physics": Active Learning Labs Transforming the Introductory Laboratory
Sokoloff, David R.; Laws, Priscilla W.; Thornton, Ronald K.
European Journal of Physics, v28 n3 pS83-S94 May 2007
Computer-based tools that enable students to collect, display and analyse data in real time have catalysed the design of a laboratory curriculum that allows students to master a coherent body of physics concepts while acquiring traditional laboratory skills. This paper describes "RealTime Physics", a sequenced introductory laboratory curriculum that is based on the results of physics education research, and uses computer-based tools to facilitate student learning. (Contains 5 footnotes, 2 tables, and 7 figures.)
