Title: "Applying Electromagnetism for Enhancing Students’ understanding in Force and Motion"

Abstract:   We developed students’ understanding in Newton’ laws by applying Electromagnetism to demonstrations. Several complicated motions in the demonstrations can be created using merely magnets. A set of apparatus that we designed based on Electromagnetism may look difficult for learning. However, it offers a useful process of thinking to students if we used it in an appropriate way. This set of demonstrations is planned to use with students who have already learned basic topics on force and simple motions. Its main purpose is to engage students to learn as well as to help them intregrate their prior knowledge to a new situation.
