Abstract Title: Visual Schema for the Analysis of the Physics Core
Abstract: Recently we developed a visual taxonomy (Burciaga & Lau 2014) to identify the role of visual elements in a textbook. One that is under-utilized in textbooks is the Organizational category, i.e., one that relates the Big Picture organization and development. Examples of organizational elements are Concept Maps or flowcharts. But can this category of visual element lend insight to the analysis of the upper-level curriculum? The author is presently developing visual schema to encapsulate the content of the core courses. In addition, I am exploring the ability to use a visual narrative to highlight common themes, narratives, and iconic problems shared among the courses.
