Analyzing the Probabilities of Time-Evolved States : Instructor's Guide

Students' Task

Estimated Time: 110 minutes

Prerequisite Knowledge


Activity: Introduction

In introductory quantum mechanics, students typically only see quantum states that are independent of time. Because they have typically never seen time dependence in quantum states before, students will typically initially struggle with time-dependent states and determining if a probability calculation will be dependent on time.
