A Search for Multi-Nucleon Production in the MINERvA Neutrino Experiment at Fermilab, 2011

Call Number: UA005.022.022.00001
Overview: The MINERvA experiment, or Main INjector Experiment for v-A, is equipped to closely study neutrino interactions on a range of targets and improve uncertainties in neutrino interaction cross sections. Quasi-elastic neutrino cross sections are mathematically modeled using form factors, which are calculated from experiment. The axial form factor depends upon the axial mass, measured by earlier bubble chamber experiments as 1.026 ± 0.021 GeV. However, recent experiments have measured the axial mass...

Challenges and Promising Approaches in the Teaching and Learning of Introductory Physics at the Secondary Level, 2008

Call Number: UA071.001.001.00008
Scope and Contents: A qualifying paper submitted in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy in Science Education. Abstract: The purpose of this review is to identify the challenges facing secondary teachers of physics, to explore the most common instructional methods currently in use and to propose future research that will lean heavily on the use of peer collaboration to foster strong conceptual change. Through this review, I will argue that: (1) Strong conceptual change or...
