Use of Vee Maps in a College Science Laboratory.
Lebowitz, Stacy J.
Students (n=45) in an introductory course in hydrology used a Vee map to guide their laboratory investigation. The Vee mapping technique was utilized by groups of students working together during the investigation and was graded with a scoring rubric developed by the instructor. At the end of the investigation, students completed a survey evaluating their perceptions of using the Vee map approach over the traditional, direct laboratory approach. The results of this study suggest that Vee maps have the potential to stimulate more thinking and learning than is commonly experienced in the traditional laboratory format. (DDR)
