abstract = {This paper describes the design of a new teaching-learning sequence on
quantum physics aimed at upper secondary school students. In this
teaching-learning sequence, GeoGebra simulations and interactive screen
experiments are used to investigate the behaviour of a single photon at
beam splitter and single photon interference in a Michelson
interferometer. We propose a minimal formalism using Dirac notation,
which avoids complex numbers and elaborate vector calculus, to make a
quantitative description of the quantum optics experiments accessible to
secondary school students. With this new educational pathway, we take
into account findings from physics education research, which suggest
that the introduction of a mathematical formalism tailored to students'
abilities might help them to overcome naive-realist views of quanta or
space-time descriptions of quantum phenomena, while at the same time
facilitating a transition to a functional understanding of quantum
model},
