dc.description.abstract Physics education research shows that activating the student as a learner increases comprehension and participation. The demonstrations put forth here are a mixture of common and unique presentations. These demonstrations have been developed through years of study, practice, reading, workshops, and classes; these experiences have shown that the lecture-only format is not as effective as a combination of lecture and interactive lecture demonstrations. These demonstrations are put forth to help the physics teacher look for a way to connect with students. Connecting with students is the key. en_US
