Sokoloff, P. Laws, and R. Thornton, with local modifications. Provided in class. INSTRUCTOR: GTAs: In Physics 295, Introductory Laboratory I, students are provided the opportunity to gain hands-on experience with specific physical phenomena in order to make more concrete the abstract presentations made in Physics 298. The manual is the outcome of a long process of development of new teaching techniques which have been shown through careful testing to be highly effective in the development of sound understanding of the concepts of Newtonian physics. One of the most important changes involves from time to time asking the student experimenters to make predictions about the outcome of the procedure that they are about to do. The result of the procedure is then compared with the prediction, and any differences are reconciled. Since the 'purpose of the prediction is toprediction, and any differences are reconciled....
