Abstract Title: Shared Resources in Student Understanding of Spherical Unit Vectors in Upper-division E&M
Abstract: The resources framework has been applied in physics education research in many different contexts.  While it focuses on the thinking of individuals, in this work we instead apply an expanded framework called shared resources to look at two small groups as they solve problems together related to spherical unit vectors in the context of upper-division E&M. Using examples of shared resources from these think-aloud interviews, we illustrate what we mean by the theoretical lens of shared resources: what they are, how they are shared, and what role they can play in helping students make sense of a difficult physics topic. This work extends previous work by including more substantial and more in-depth analysis from two much richer examples.
