Description:

In this conference presentation, the authors describe two examples of students having difficulty constructing an understanding of quantum mechanics due to an erroneous model of classical physics. For each example, the authors describe how a misconception of a classical concept impairs the learning of a quantum concept. This paper contains a brief discussion of how these difficulties may be addressed.
