Abstract Title: Using Real-Time Data Display to Improve Conceptual Understanding and Spatial Visualization Ability
Abstract: Students who take active learning physics courses that use real-time data collection and display show improvements in spatial visualization ability as measured by standard tests. Teachers in a two-week workshop using such materials also improved. There is an initial correlation between spatial ability and performance of the Force & Motion Conceptual Evaluation.
