Magnetism Slide Show:
A small slideshow that has some content notes and some questions. A small example of a slideshow that isn't purely, deathly boring.It isn't great, but its ok. A work in progress. plulai.

PPT: Magnetism and Relativity
Contributed by David Derbes
Description: A PowerPoint file showing how the magnetic force acting on a moving charge may be regarded as an electric force from the rest frame of the moving charge. Based upon the treatment of E. M. Purcell, “Electricity and Magnetism”, and T. M. Helliwell, “Introduction to Special Relativity”.

Particle Accelerator Data
The international group of high energy physicists involved in particle accelerators have a group of websites that allow students to use real collision data. Students can use this data in an attempt to determine what interactions have occurred. Cool Stuff. A charged particle is bent as it travels through these detectors. A nice way to tie Modern Physics & E&M.
Magnetic Field Labs (from the
Matter & Interactions
Using a compass, students determine the 1/r relationship for the magnetic field of a long straight wire:

Using a compass students determine the current in a coil of wire and the 1/r
relationship for the magnetic field of a bar magnet:

Lenz's Law practice worksheet with flip book assignment
by Francie Cashman
Worksheet has different scenarios in which students identify the induced magnetic field and current. Students then create a flip book from squares of paper to animate Lenz's law through a few induced current reversals. I use this in my CP and Honors Physics classes to help students really get Lenz's law. Most students assemble their own flip book while others opt to purchase a Post-It style pad and draw on that.
