Abstract

Throughout the years, many problems and misunderstandings have arisen in magnetic terminology, units, and concepts. Because of this, magnetism has been a source of many misconceptions for the average undergraduate student. This project's goals are to develop novel ways of introducing the subject of magnetism to undergraduates at the beginning to intermediate levels, and to conduct preliminary work in physics educational research.
