By Robert Gilmore

During this cleverly conceived publication, physicist Robert Gilmore makes obtainable a few complicated ideas in quantum mechanics by means of sending Alice to Quantumland-a entire new Wonderland, smaller than an atom, the place each one appeal demonstrates a distinct point of quantum conception. Alice strange encounters, more suitable via illustrations via Gilmore himself, make the Uncertainty precept, wave capabilities, the Pauli precept, and different elusive options more uncomplicated to understand.

The ratio of the number of time units with KP divided by the total number of time units in this context X (multiplied by 100) then result in what we call the density. , Hucke et al. , all in this volume) and in Haller (1999), data gained with this method yield some typical results: Manipulating apparatus and doing measurement together takes much time (between 50 – 80% of time) during labwork. At the same time, these lab contexts contribute rather low to the verbalisation of physics knowledge. The densities are in most cases below 10%.

In this sense, data-taking techniques differ from the specially contrived situations, are they paper-and-pencil tests or set practicals, which are used to assess the outcomes of labwork as discussed in the next section of this study. , Chapter 1 of this volume). This method deals with what the students are doing during the labwork sessions in relation to the resources that constitute a laboratory context. The new elements in the method involve fast analysis of large amounts of videotapes from labwork according to predetermined categories, focusing on the relations of student laboratory practice with the relevant scientific theory.

Such an undefined relation is indicated by the dotted line between the boxes representing effectiveness 1 and effectiveness 2. Acquisitions, which are signs of effectiveness 2, are in descending chronological order following student practices during labwork, which are signs of effectiveness 1. We argue, though, that descending chronological order does not necessarily imply a linear causal dependency between such outcomes. A piece of labwork may simply be effective from either or both points of view.
