Abstract Title: Supporting Students’ Visualization of Magnetic Fields with Smartphones and AR
Abstract: Using only a smartphone, we have developed an app that permits learners to anchor magnetometer measurements to 3-D space that can be viewed through the camera. We have prepared a series of exploration protocols that help users explore background and non-idealized magnetic fields. Our preliminary work with users suggests that exploration with this technology helps students to think critically about the limitations of idealized field models and recognize the complexity of environmental fields.
