We are teachers who have benefited from the Open Source Physics (Brown, 2012; Christian, 2010; Esquembre, 2012) community's work and we would like to share some of the computer models and lesson packages that we have designed and implemented in five schools grade 11 to 12 classes. In a ground-up teacher-leadership (MOE, 2010) approach, we came together to learn, advancing the professionalism (MOE, 2009) of physics educators and improve students' learning experiences through suitable blend…

One-Dimensional Collision Carts Computer Model and Its Design Ideas for Productive Experiential Learning.
We develop an Easy Java Simulation (EJS) model for students to experience the physics of idealized one-dimensional collision carts. The physics model is described and simulated by both continuous
Interactive-engagement versus traditional methods: A six-thousand-student survey of mechanics test data for introductory physics courses
A survey of pre/post-test data using the Halloun–Hestenes Mechanics Diagnostic test or more recent Force Concept Inventory is reported for 62 introductory physics courses enrolling a total number of
Impact of interactive engagement on reducing the gender gap in quantum physics learning outcomes among senior secondary school students
In this study, the author examines the extent to which an interactive engagement approach can reduce the gender gap in senior secondary school (SSS) (age 16–18 years) students' learning outcomes in
Learning with multiple representations: an example of a revision lesson in mechanics
We describe an example of learning with multiple representations in an A-level revision lesson on mechanics. The context of the problem involved the motion of a ball thrown vertically upwards in air
