These World Wide Web pages present tips and techniques that I have found useful in teaching junior-senior level quantum mechanics courses.

In the flood of details, it is often hard to remember that the three characteristic traits of quantum mechanics are probability, interference, and entanglement.
"Introduction to Quantum Physics", by Kerman, Sartori, and Taylor, was written in 1968 but is still a stunningly innovate approach to quantum physics.
It is not surprising that I also recommend perusing the article: (If you have the free Adobe Acrobat Reader software, then you may read the above article by clicking on its title.
