Abstract Title: Developing a Robust Clicker Question Sequence for Larmor Precession in Quantum Mechanics
Abstract: Effective use of clicker questions in physics courses at all levels can be an excellent formative assessment tool and can help students learn physics concepts and develop their reasoning and metacognitive skills. Here we discuss our research on the development and both out-of-class and in-class validation of an effective clicker question sequence for helping students learn about the time-dependence of expectation values in quantum mechanics using the Larmor precession of spin. We also discuss the in-class evaluation which involved analyzing data from the implementation of the clicker question sequence which was earlier validated out-of-class in two upper-level undergraduate quantum mechanics courses taught by two different instructors at the same institution who used two different textbooks. We thank the National Science Foundation for award PHY-1806691.
