Pedagogical Materials and Suggestions to Cure Misconceptions Connecting Special and General Relativity: https://arxiv.org/abs/1907.02497

Many professional physicists do not fully understand the implications of the Einstein equivalence principle of general relativity. Consequently, many are unaware of the fact that special relativity is fully capable of handling accelerated reference frames. We present results from our nationwide survey that confirm this is the case. We discuss possible origins of this misconception, then suggest new materials for educators to use while discussing the classic twin paradox example. Afterwards, we review typical introductions to general relativity, clarify the equivalence principle, then suggest additional material to be used when the Einstein equivalence principle is covered in an introductory course. All of our suggestions are straightforward enough to be administered to a sophomore-level modern physics class.
