Rosi, Tommaso; Gratton, Luigi M.; Onorato, Pasquale; Oss, Stefano – Physics Education, 2019
We propose to reconsider the well-known experiment about the interference of white light from a thin soap film by adopting as an illuminating source the RGB triad produced by a LED projector. The interference pattern shows up in a particularly fascinating way and it contains direct, essential information about both the wave nature of light and of…

de Jesus, V. L. B.; Pérez, C. A. C.; de Oliveira, A. L.; Sasaki, D. G. G. – Physics Education, 2019
Currently, the number of smartphones with an embedded gyroscope sensor has been increasing due games whose performance relies on 3D augmented reality. In general, teaching papers on the gyroscope sensor address very simple spatial configuration, where the fixed rotation axis coincides to the z-axis of the smartphone. This work presents five…

Passon, Oliver; Zügge, Thomas; Grebe-Ellis, Johannes – Physics Education, 2019
Elementary particle physics is gradually implemented into science curricula at the high school level. However, common presentations on educational, semi-technical or popular level contain or support severe misconceptions. We discuss in particular the notion of 'particle', the interaction between them and the use of Feynman diagrams. In many cases…

Woo, Yura; Ju, Young-Gu – Physics Education, 2019
In this paper, we present the details of the development of a smartphone spectrometer for education using a 3D printer and characterized the performance by comparison with a paper craft spectrometer. The optical design and the narrow slit used in the build resulted in the formation of accurate images of the slit on the image sensor leading to a…

Bokor, Nándor – Physics Education, 2019
This paper describes a simple and effective trick with a ball on a flat surface. The trick does not require any skills, is surprising and can provide an attention-grabbing, fun introduction for high school students into the topic of pure rolling motion versus rolling with slipping.

Ait Tahar, M.; Schadschneider, A.; Stollenwerk, J. – Physics Education, 2019
This article is about the development of an Internet-based remotely-controlled physical experiment, this is a part of the Remotely Controlled Laboratory at the University of Applied Sciences of Cologne known as TH Köln. The main experimental set-up is based on Pohl's Torsion Pendulum which was enhanced by a PXI measurement system and a webcam. In…

Sargrad, Scott; Partelow, Lisette; Yin, Jessica – Center for American Progress, 2019
The 2018 elections were historic on many levels, with the highest turnout in a midterm year since 1914, record numbers of women winning office, and the first Native American and Muslim women ever elected to Congress. At the state level, 36 governors' races were on the ballot, and 20 newly elected governors take office in January. As these 20 new…

Kyza, Eleni A.; Georgiou, Yiannis – Interactive Learning Environments, 2019
While learning can happen anywhere and everywhere, most educational practices in K-12 are confined within the walls of a classroom and the school; such practices narrowly define learning and exclude the opportunities that an expanded and digitally mediated definition of learning can offer. Augmented reality (AR) technologies offer exciting new…

Elliott, Gregory; McCormick, John; Bhindi, Narottam – British Journal of Religious Education, 2019
Religious education in Australian Catholic High Schools is the raison d'etre for the Catholic education system and religious education teachers are critical to this mission. This paper offers a framework for investigating the self-efficacy of religious education teachers.We first describe the nature and context of religious education in Australian…

Palatnik, Alik; Sigler, Avi – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
The introduction of auxiliary elements as a method of solving problems in high-school geometry is considered here from two perspectives: first, to elicit recalling some known result or concretizing a definition and, second, as a means of shifting the focus and structure of the students' attention. We present and compare various examples of how…

LeSuer, Robert J. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
Consumer-grade manufacturing tools such as 3D printers are becoming increasingly prevalent in STEM education environments, especially as tools to develop inexpensive, tactile visualization models. Presented here is a workflow for creating 3D-printed periodic tables displaying a variety of trends from traditionally taught relationships such as…

Tan, Shun Yu; Hölttä-Otto, Katja; Anariba, Franklin – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
A hands-on design activity named "electrochemistry designette" that incorporates design thinking with the aims to strengthen electrochemistry concepts, introduce prototyping ideas, encourage student class participation, and foster creativity is presented. This active learning activity, which lies at the interface of design and…

Wiggins, Marcie B.; Heath, Emma; Alcántara-García, Jocelyn – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
The interface of art and science provides a broad range of educational and collaborative projects at various learning stages. Therefore, the use of historic artists' materials for teaching chemistry is receiving more attention. We prepared and used copper acetate (verdigris pigment) for a series of interconnected, lab-based activities, which can…

Murray, Liz – Learning Professional, 2019
Transitions are a part of life for all students, but particularly for students at Phoenix Charter Academy in Massachusetts. Phoenix students have persevered and shown resilience through challenges in school and in their personal lives that many of us cannot imagine. Students come to Phoenix with a wealth of strengths and assets, from strong work…
