|Title||Stern Gerlach clicker questions|
|Description||These lecture notes include concept questions on the basic ideas of the Stern Gerlach experiment. The powerpoint includes animations of various experiments, which can be supplemented by demonstrating the same experiments with the Stern Gerlach simulation. These questions could also be used as homework, asking students to use the simulation to confirm their answers. These questions were developed for use in a sophomore level modern physics course. For more details about the course, please see: http://per.colorado.edu/modern. Please email email@example.com if you are a teacher and would like a solution key.|
