Gülçiçek, Çaglar; Kanli, Uygar – Universal Journal of Educational Research, 2018
Although lab activities play an important role in physics teaching, many of these activities do not attain the expected objectives. Many reasons can be advanced for this, such as a lack of apparatus/equipment in schools, limits to the lab time allocated, teachers' lack of knowledge and skills about lab-oriented teaching methods or the teachers'…

Atwood, Ronald K.; Christopher, John E.; Combs, Rebecca K.; Roland, Elizabeth E. – Science Educator, 2010
Magnetism is a topic frequently studied in elementary schools. Since magnetism is a popular topic and is included in national science education standards, it might be assumed that elementary teachers have a good understanding of this topic and that elementary students develop a good understanding of fundamental magnetism concepts. Unfortunately,…

Nousiainen, Maija; Koponen, Ismo T. – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
The concepts of electricity and magnetism in physics are complex and demanding to learn because their meaning builds through several different phenomenological areas. Each of the phenomenological areas adds a certain facet of the meaning of the concept. All standard physics textbooks discuss at least 1) force, 2) energy and work, and 3) electric…

Koponen, Ismo T.; Nousiainen, Maija – Education Sciences, 2019
Relational interlinked dependencies between concepts constitute the structure of abstract knowledge and are crucial in learning conceptual knowledge and the meaning of concepts. To explore pre-service teachers' declarative knowledge of physics concepts, we have analyzed concept networks, which agglomerate 12 pre-service teacher students'…

Ogegbo, Ayodele Abosede; Gaigher, Estelle; Salagaram, Trisha – South African Journal of Education, 2019
This study explored teachers' experiences in the teaching of electricity and magnetism during a Lesson Study intervention. Using a case study research design, a sample of 4 physical sciences teachers was conveniently selected from schools in rural and suburban areas. Due to logistical challenges, the 4 participants were grouped into 2 separately…

Dega, Bekele Gashe – Science Education International, 2019
Science concepts, like electromagnetism, involve abstract relations, which are often problematic in students' learning. Electromagnetism concepts are crosscutting concepts across science disciplines. Astandardized Conceptual Survey of Electricity and Magnetism, which is a 32-item multiple-choice test, was used to collect data from 117 first-year…

Voutsina, Lambrini; Ravanis, Konstantinos – Themes in Science and Technology Education, 2011
This study documents the mental representations of magnetism constructed by students aged 15-17 and attempts to investigate whether these display the characteristics of models with an inner cohesiveness and constancy; whether they share common features with typical historical models of the Sciences; and whether they evolve through conventional…

Moore, James Christopher – Education Sciences, 2018
We have investigated the efficacy of on-line, multimedia learning modules (MLMs) as preparation for in-class, lecture-based tutorials in electromagnetism in a physics course for natural science majors (biology and marine science). Specifically, we report the results of a multiple-group pre/post-test research design comparing two groups receiving…

Okulu, Hasan Zühtü; Ünver, Ayse Oguz – International Education Studies, 2018
The current research is to give an example to the inquiry-based science teaching implementations for facilitating knowledge acquisition and retention in a short period of time. Thus, the aim of the research is to transfer of acquired knowledge into different situations using sequential inquiry activities, which have challenging questions for…

Kizito, Ndihokubwayo; Kinya, Shimizu; Hideo, Ikeda; Takuya, Baba – Online Submission, 2019
This study is investigating the student-teachers' conception of static electricity in Rwandan teacher training colleges. The study used a pre- and post-intervention design, where two groups of students were randomly assigned in two groups. Along a period of four weeks, one group was taught using the traditional method (TRAD) while another using…

Ismail, Yilmaz – International Journal of Educational Administration and Policy Studies, 2016
This study aims to develop a semiotic declarative knowledge model, which is a positive constructive behavior model that systematically facilitates understanding in order to ensure that learners think accurately and ask the right questions about a topic. The data used to develop the experimental model were obtained using four measurement tools…

Karacop, Ataman – Universal Journal of Educational Research, 2017
The main aim of the present study is to determine the influence of a Jigsaw method based on cooperative learning and a confirmatory laboratory method on prospective science teachers' achievements of physics in science teaching laboratory practice courses. The sample of this study consisted of 33 female and 15 male third-grade prospective science…

Syed, M. Qasim – Journal of College Teaching & Learning, 2015
Students in first-year physics courses generally focus on hunting for suitable equations and formulas when tackling a variety of physical situations and physics problems. There is a need for a framework that can guide them to disciplinary ways of thinking and help them begin to think like physicists. To serve this end, in this study, a framework…

Aydeniz, Mehmet; Cihak, David F.; Graham, Shannon C.; Retinger, Larryn – International Journal of Special Education, 2012
The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of inquiry-based science instruction for five elementary students with learning disabilities (LD). Students participated in a series of inquiry-based activities targeting conceptual and application-based understanding of simple electric circuits, conductors and insulators, parallel circuits, and…
