This is the second of two closely related articles that together describe how results from research can be used as a guide for curriculum development. The first article shows how the investigation of student understanding of
electric circuits by the Physics Education Group has contributed to the building of a research base. This second article describes how the group has drawn on this resource both in developing a curriculum for laboratory‐based instruction and in adapting this curriculum to fit the constraints of a traditional introductory course. Also discussed is how, in turn, development and implementation of the curriculum have enriched the research base.
