Is Physics Easier if Taught Incorrectly?
Iona, Mario
Examples of errors in statements of physics concepts found in textbooks at all levels are cited and discussed. The author states: "There seems to be a tendency to be deliberately careless in textbooks for the lower levels, apparently in an attempt to be understood more easily." Oversimplifications identified as errors are presented with comments as to their accuracy. (Author/TS)
