Abstract Title: Developing and Evaluating a Quantum Interactive Learning Tutorial on Mach Zehnder Interferometer with Single Photons
Abstract: We have been conducting research and developing and evaluating a quantum interactive learning tutorial (QuILT) on Mach Zehnder Interferometer with single photons to help students learn quantum mechanics. The QuILT strives to help students develop the ability to apply quantum principles in physical situations, explore differences between classical and quantum ideas, and organize knowledge hierarchically.  It adapt visualization tools to help students build physical intuition about quantum phenomena and focuses on helping them integrate qualitative and quantitative understanding. Details of the development and evaluation will be discussed. This work is supported by the National Science Foundation.
