If sketching, simulations and quantum mechanics are your thing!

Although intermediate level quantum mechanics involves some far from straightforward (from my limited perspective) mathematical reasoning; it can also involve visual reasoning.

In this paper, co-authored with my amazing collaborators, who are working constantly to improve physics teaching, we explore how visual learning of quantum mechanics with simulations can be enhanced by asking students to draw both and during their interaction with these simulations.

See this paper (open access) for lots more detail and do follow what Antje Kohnle and Gina Passante are up to.
