Much of the difficulty in learning advanced concepts in quantum mechanics comes from trying to visualize abstract problems. This article addresses the situation with interactive curricular material created as part of the Open Source Physics project. In particular, the authors focus on the measurement and time evolution of two-state superpositions in the context of bound states and spin.
