Title MRI lecture and homework
Description This activity includes lecture notes for 50 minutes lectures and homework for an introduction to MRI for a sophomore level modern physics course. The lecture notes include many concept questions. Although the notes don't have many explicit references to the simulation, we illustrate all the key points with the Simplified MRI simulation. For more details about the course, please see: http://per.colorado.edu/modern This activity was used in a course where questions were constrained to being multiple choice or numeric for computer grading, so it is not as inquiry based.
