NEW APPROACHES: Gradual introduction of some aspects of quantum mechanics in a high school curriculum
Abstract
The basic concepts of quantum mechanics can be introduced at a high school level by considering the action of classical mechanics and then introducing Planck's constant as the granularity of that action. A practical example of the periodic motion of a spring allows students to investigate the limits of classical mechanics, and concepts such as the Uncertainty Principle can be discussed.
