Abstract

This project is a yearly endeavor by the Physics Department to continually improve the labs for the 1100-level physics courses. For this year, my project consisted of using data to find problems with labs, choosing a lab to change, altering the lab in order to improve upon the problems, and lastly, testing out how well these changes improved the lab. The project used two methods of determining the effect of the lab on the students: using a survey to get subjective opinions from the students and analysis of the grades to see how well the students were performing in the labs.
