Abstract Title: Improving Student Understanding of Addition of Angular Momentum
Abstract: We describe the difficulties advanced undergraduate and graduate students have with concepts related to addition of angular momentum. We also describe the development and implementation of a research-based learning tool, a Quantum Interactive Learning Tutorial (QuILT), to reduce these difficulties. The preliminary evaluation shows that the QuILT on the addition of angular momentum is helpful in improving students' understanding of these concepts.
