Ides of August Album One  

Visiting Assistant Professor of Physics Eleanor Sayre reported early results from her National Science Foundation-supported research on “learning and forgetting among physics students." Sayre is blending cognitive science, an innovative methodology linked to a Web-based survey system, and a deep understanding of the “language” of physics to study how students learn—and sometimes forget—important concepts in calculus-based introductory physics courses.

Students working with her on the project sophomores Tyler Koch and Tianren Wang.
