Perspectives in Quantum Physics: Epistemological, Ontological and Pedagogical
by

Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 353

Description:
We have developed a framework for understanding and characterizing student perspectives on the physical interpretation of quantum mechanics, and demonstrate the differential impact on student thinking of the myriad ways instructors approach interpretive themes in their introductory courses. We show how a transformed modern physics curriculum may positively impact student perspectives on indeterminacy and wave-particle duality, by making questions of classical and quantum reality a central theme of our course, but also by making the beliefs of our students, and not just those of scientists, an explicit topic of discussion.
